Hi,

Is there a hidden tip (i.e. Registry) to increase the number of items (folders) in the "Move" dropdown button ?

TIA,

Phil

No the folders are created directly inside the Outlook PST files and not kept in Registry.

When we click the Move dropdown, the list is basically filled from the Folders' collection directly and displayed.

We can create a addin that can be plugged in to allow the user to type in a name of new folder directly.

nishantace: I do not want to create my own list but just to be able to increase the number (actual : 10) of items in this list. Any idea if I can influence this number ?

in response to nishantace, the drop down list IS kept in the registry at this location under the "101f031e" key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\[profile name]\0a0d020000000000c000000000000046

However this is only the list and I don't see any way to increse the number of items in the list. Once you chose another folder from the list, it is positioned at the top and the last one (10th) is dropped.
