Outlook application

The common view folder contains a predefined set of standard view specifiers, while the view folder contains specifiers defined by a messaging user. These folders, which are not visible in the interpersonal message (IPM) hierarchy, can hold many view specifiers, each one stored as a message. A client application can choose to merge the two sets of specifiers and make them both available.
