I'm trying to organize the file catagories where I save my email.  Some of the titles will move if I "drag" them to the inbox to alphabatize , but most of them don't move.  Can anyone tell me how to move the file catagories?

From my experience, when you create new local folders, there are two ways I know of to change their display order. They should appear alphabetically automatically when you create them, but if they don't for some reason, after you have created them right click on each one, select "Rename" and re-enter the name. That should put them in the correct sequence.

Another is to use numerical order if you don't want them alphabetical. Put a number as the first character in each folder name and they will display in that sequence-- ie: 1--2--3--4-- and so on. The first character seems to be the determining factor.

It's a little trick I picked up playing around with my old Yahoo account, which responds the same way. I suspect other webmail programs use it too but I haven't tried it with any others.

Thank you for the response.  I discovered that when "dragging" the title to where I wanted it, I had to wait until the destination had a clear background instead of the solid blue background.  Then it would drop in place.
