    What's the significance of having the Preview pane just up and disappear in
    certain folders, not even available as a selection anymore? Or maybe I
    should be asking, in what kinds of folders is that pane available? For
    example, it's not available if I navigate to my message store folder
    (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail).

    Also in those message store folders, what's the significance of the blue
    file/folder names? How are they different form the not-blue items?

  2. The disappearance is fixed in 5365 and the blue folders are called Virtual
    Folders, it stores information based on a specific topic you might have
    searched for and decided save. The folder automatically updates itself with
    data relating to that search query you might make a few months later. So,
    you have information stored on all meeting agendas, anytime you store
    information in your Documents folder or anywhere on the PC, it automatically
    updates the blue folder with information on Agendas.

    Like in Windows XP, blue files and folders are compressed ones.

    Yeah, I realized after I posted that they probably are just compressed.

  5. To clarify for others (me included :), blue text labels on folders and files
    indicate compression in XP and presumably Vista. Blue folder icons in Vista
    are Search Folders.
