We use Outlook 2003 and 2007 and have a Document management service which creates folders in Outlook. Some of my users have asked if it is possible to color code these folders in Outlook. I would like to set one folder a different color from the default color and have its sub folders also take that color as they are created.

    Sorry rpowell03, but you aren't able to do that.

    The best solution I have is for your users to have a standard naming convention for the folders to help them identify them better.
