    Absolutely, just right-click the folder and choose Rename. Note that some system folders like Inbox is not possible to rename anymore (worked in Outlook 2000).

    Hi worded !

    Right click on the top level folder (the one that says Personal Folders).
    Choose Properties > Advanced button. You can rename them there.

    Best wishes, war1

    The Advanced button was needed so WAR1 get the points.  (was greyed out if just right clicked)
