We are using Outlook 2007 on Windows XP with Exchange 2003.  I have a user who uses favorite folders extensively.  She would like to sort the folders alphabetically.  I haven't been able to find any way to sort the favorite folders other than manually moving them around.  

Is it possible to sort the favorite folders alphabetically?

    re-arrange them by right clicking on a folder and choosing move up or move down...thats the only way around.....

    That's what I was afraid of.  I was hoping for a sort by name option like in IE or the Start menu.

    1.yeah see this link under,
    Move folders to arrange them in a different order  
    Click a folder and drag it to where you want it in the Favorite Folders list.

    2.Refer the comment on the page 15 of this attached document,,,,,

    """""TIP: Any folders that you
    create will be arranged
    alphabetically. To force a
    folder to appear at the top
    of this alphabetical list, try
    adding a *, _ or & in
    front of your folder name"""""""
