I have searched and "googled" endlessly and have not found an answer. Some of
my Outlook 2007 folders had a plain folder icon, and some haver a folder with
a "hand" on it, similar to the one used on Windows Explorer folder shares.

What odes that indicate??

That you can share them. :) AFAIK, it only happens in Exchange mailboxes and
only if the folder was created in Ol2007. If you access the mailbox with
Outlook 2003 and make a folder it will not have the hand when you open it in
2007.
