Do not create default Search Folders when users start Outlook

By default, Outlook creates a set of Search Folders (in Mail, in the Navigation Pane) when users start Outlook for the first time: For Follow Up, Large Mail, and Unread Mail. By enabling this setting, you can prevent these default Search Folders from being created.
