    Un-alphabetize Outlook 200 sub-folders

    Locked

    by ess pee ·

    Is there a way to remove the default feature that sorts the sub-folders in Outlook alphabetically? I am trying to create a sub-folder structure that list Jan, Feb, March etc. however Outlook automatically re organizes the folders in alphabetical order.

      Don’t think so. I’d be interested if anyone knows of a way to do that.

      Until then, you can always use a common tag in front of the folder names. Something like Month – January, Month – February, etc…or even #January, #February if you don’t mind the having a symbol in front.

      I have been checking this and have not found a ‘built-in’ solution. Outlook provides many ways of sorting items within folders but not the folder themselves.

      A workaround to this if Outlook does not provide any manner of changing the folder sortorder is to name the folders…

      01-January
      02-February
      03-March…

      10-October
      11-November
      12-December

      Using the numeric base (the lead zero is imperative on January-September) will force Outlook to sort these folders in the manner you desire.
