Are yiu referencing the Comcast  Folders in the inbox?  The order cannot be changed as they are apart of the program interface. If yiu are referring to Folders that yiu have created, yiu can move those.  Just make sure that all created folders appear BELOW all Comcast Folders...Otherwise they would be subject to the email settings  you have  set I n the Emaik Deletiin Schdule.

(Inbox>preferences> Email icon> Email Settings.

Re: email boxes


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. You can do the same thing using the letters of the alphabet.

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.
