Hi All.

On XP Outlook Express, on the Folders column, the top ones were...Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items & Drafts.

On W8 the above are in alphabetic order. Is it possible to move, bunch them together in W8 as in XP? Yhanks. PJ

What email program ? W8 doesn't come with a email program ( same as W7)

If you are using Live Mail, heres the default Layout: (Names removed from two accounts) + top account has a created folder.

There is a huge difference between Outlook Express and Outlook.

Outlook 2007 & 2010 is fixed as is with Alphabetic and Numerical order. (AFAIK)

What you can do is put a number in front of the Folder Name so it then auto arranges

Example:

1 Trade Me
2 House Stuff
3 Birthdays

Etc

Upgrade to Outlook 2013 and its a feature inbuilt. :D

Is it possible to move, bunch them together Not to sure what you mean by that ?? You can create a Folder and make sub-folders within the folder -- Exactly the same way as previously ( if thats what is meant)

That pic is cool Wainui. I've just migrated to a Windows 8.1 machine and detest the user interface but accept I'd better learn.

Am using Outlook for mail but what I see is absolutely bare bones - nothing like your pic. I do have MS Office 2013 loaded now. Am I using a low level version of Outlook by default or are there settings hidden somewhere. Tells me it won't accept POP3 either. What about xtra.mail?

If it doesn't accept POP3 you're using the built-in Mail app, not Outlook. :)

Aha - thanks Pcuser, but the mail app calls itself Outlook.

Anyway understood and I'll have to go through all the bleedin setup contacts etc once again.

Cheers. :D

I have found a workaround, I think. Click on "Inbox" look down list & "Add to favourites". This then goes to the top of the folders list. Dont know if it will work yet. PJ
