How to customise the order of folder in Folder List?


Currently my Outlook's Folder List view is as follow:
+ 2003 PST
+ Mailbox - My_Name   <- this is my mailbox on our Exchange
+ Public Folders
+ Roger PST             <- This is where the Incoming mails will be

How can I make it to be shown as follow?:
+ Roger PST
+ 2003 PST
+ Mailbox - My_Name
+ Public Folders

Thanks for any pointers.

Hi Sur,

Outlook automatically sorts the folders in alphabetical order, placing numbers before letters.  To get around this you can preface the name of each folder by a number, or place a "." 
(period) in front of folders you want to appear at the top.  In your example, you could place a "1" in front of Rogers.PST to make it display first.

1-Roger PST
2003 PST
Mailbox - My_Name
Public Folders

Default file folder when inserting attachments Outlook 2007
Using Outlook 2007. When inserting attachments, the default file folder it opens to is My Documents. Is it possible to replace this file folder with one of my choosing? Thanks and have a great day! Donna I know the File location will always be the last place you went to. IE: If the last time you open a document in word was my documents the next time you go to open something it should be at the my documents folder to start.

Moving Public Folders from 2000 to 2003
Hi, I have two domains. Domain 1 has Windows 2000 Server with Exchange 2000. Domain 2 has Windows 2003 server with Exchange 2003. I need to move the public folders from 2000 to 2003 and keep the Entry IDs intact during the migration as a SQL database relies on them.

Benefits of Using Excel Lists?
Excel 2003 now has a Create List option under the Data Menu. From the reading I've done in Help, it says the "Lists" can communicate with Windows Sharepoint Services. For someone who doeesn't have Sharepoint and doesn't plan to use it, is there any benefit in setting up your data range as a "List" rather than just leaving it as a data range? I see that you can insert a Totals Row in a "List", but you can't use the Subtotal command under the Data Menu to get multiple subtotals. I thought maybe when I did a Word mail merge and used the Exce...
