You mean you want to pick up making "Yogurt" and it's very important? And you have tried dragging around your folders to re-arrange them? All to no avail?
Unfortunately, Outlook is very strict about its alphabetically sorting folders. Fortunately, it is just strict sorting cardinally.
Sort Outlook Folders in Arbitrary, Non-Alphabetic Order
To apply custom order to your folders in Outlook:
- Click on the folder you wish to appear first with the right mouse button.
- Select Rename ... from the menu.
- Precede the current folder name with "1 " (not including the quotation marks).
- If the folder is called "Today", for example, change the name to "1 Today".
- Hit Enter.
- Repeat for the folder you wish to appear next; precede its name with "2 ".
- Continue renaming folders with the desired order number.
- If you have many folders and wish to retain flexibility, rename folders "1 Today", "10 This Week", "20 This Month" etc..
- You can also group folders as sub-folders and sort the parent folders using the same technique.
- As a gentler alternative to numbers, you can use lower case letters: "a Today", "c This Week", "e This Month" etc.
To bring a single folder to the top in the Outlook folder list:
- Rename the folder preceding its name with "!".
- "Today" would become "!Today", for example.
