In my folder list view, I use to have my Outlook Today first, then Personal Folder then Public Folders.  Now somehow it changed to my personal folders first then Outlook today then public folder.  How do I change it back to the way it was?

Hi mystikal1000

If neither or the above suggestions works for you, close your personal folders, then open them again.  It will/should revert back to Outlook Today, Personal Folders, Public Folders.

No, you don't have mail accounts if you are setup in Corporate Workgroup (CW) mode to use exchange.

Did you close the personal folders? If so, then  you would only have the "Outlook Today" and Public Folders.  Then do: File > Open  ... Personal Folders

Also, check Tools > Services > Deliver > Deliver New Mail to:

Folders should be sorted alphabetically.
Did you rename your personal folder?
