Re: how do i rearrange email folders

When you click on the folder icon with the + sign next to it, you should see a box pop up with a blank line for you to name the new folder. After you name it, click on the little arrow next to "Folders", and all the folders underneath it will be hidden. Then go ahead and save the new one, and it will be below the default folders. That's in the Full version of Xfinity Connect.



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 a letter of the alphabet.  So if you have a folder named "Tool" and you want it at the top of the list, try renaming it "1Tools". or "aTools", and so on.

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.
