Both Outlook and Outlook Web Access has very nice feature, in the list of emails, right click on e-mail popup menu, where there is
Move to > menu item. When it is selected, contents of it is like:
Recent Folder 1 Recent Folder 2 . . . Recent Folder 10 Move to other folder...
Very productive feature for use with mouse, when away from keyboard, or lazy to press it. There are also a number of disadvantages in MS’s implementation which can be considered straight away:
- Folder names are not prefixed with e-mail account they relate to, so if you have more than one account in Outlook and there is a folder name like
Accountingin both accounts, from sub-menu above, you see:
Accounting Accounting . . . Move to other folder...
So it is impossible to distinguish to which account folder message will be moved. This can be solved by prefixing for example
Account Name - Folder. Also account may have an abbreviation letter assigned to it, so that folder name in multi-account can be displayed as
A - Folder,
B - Folder etc.
- Number of recent folders is not configurable in MS’s implementation.
For now, I’m cleaning my mailboxes in Outlook / Web Access, because of this feature is missing.
