    I can confirm that as of 11/29/2016 that Microsoft still has not fixed the rules. I have even tried deleting all of the rules and creating a new one by the Move command. It will move all of the old messages properly but not any new ones that come in. This is email basics 101 that any entry level programmer could handle.

    In the new and IMPROVED "Outlook Mail" web based browser version if you cannot move a folder back to the top parent level.

    If you have a folder structure such as:
    Folders
    Inbox
    Folder 1
    Sub Folder 1
    Folder 2
    Folder 3

    And somehow Folder 2 gets moved below Folder 1 like:
    Folders
    Inbox
    Folder 1
    Sub Folder 1
    Folder 2
    Folder 3

    One would think the logical way to get it back is to drag it and drop it all the way to the left. But no that just drops it back as a child of one of them.

    Next I would think it would be logical to drop it on the main Folders at the very top and let it be sorted Alphabetically. Nope once again that doesn't work either.

    So the only option that I see that a user can do this is to create a new parent level folder, copy all emails over to that, and delete the original one. Of coarse that means redoing all of the rules to point to the new folder also.

    So why not allow one to drop it on the Folders at the top like all other programs would work.
