PLEASE PLEASE make custom formatting (color coding) the folder list possible! I waste SO. much. time. scrolling around trying to find folders.
Yes, I've gotta put them in a folder, I just do.
Yep, I've created Quick Steps for a few folders with the highest traffic but there just isn't enough prime Quick Step real estate to go around when you frequently need to utilize a multitude of folders.
"Why not Favorite all your favorite folders then?" you ask? --Because one can only have so many Favorites before they take up too much space in the side bar and you're then reduced to a tiny half-inch box to scroll through the entirety of the folders that aren't in your Favorites. No, you can't adjust how much space the Favorites take up.
"Well maybe you could just click to minimize the Favorit..." --Clicking, clicking, clicking. Too much clicking makes Johnny a dull boy.
"Surely there must be a quick way to search through your folder names then?" --No. No there is not. Yes I know it's absurd, I'm not sure why they're punishing us like this, that's why we're begging them--
Oh most powerful developers, FOR THE LOVE OF THE EMAIL GODS, please make >>formatting the folder list (including color coding)<< possible...and if you'd like to make color coding all the open Outlook windows possible too, great, I won't stop you...and if you'd like to add >>>a search bar<<< specifically to search through folder names, that'd be fab.

It boggles my mind that Outlook hasn't made this a standard feature yet. This issue causes me to forgo filing my emails most times because it would take up literally hours of my work week. And then I end up drowning in the black hole that is my inbox.
It wouldn't be so bad if you could at least customize how the folder list was displayed, such as opening a window that spans the entire height of your screen instead of the tiny, sick joke of a window that currently opens when you want to move it to another folder. Or being able to highlight the names in different colors or changing the font color or bolding or ANYTHING to make quickly finding folders easier...
I would still much prefer to be able to just start typing the folder name and then be presented with my folder options.
