As email are processed assigning them to a folder is obviously a great feature but it needs to be flexible. Consider the default folder but allow for additional options. It follows a received email may have multiple purposes. Example: A bank sends "Transactions", "Statements", "Reminders" (Bin!), "Promotions" distributing emails from such a list would be a significant benefit.
In the first instance the distribution list is built from the first time it is received. A combination of Sender & Subject provide, in some cases the Sender uses a sub-domain to identify its purpose.
The client chooses an appropriate candidate or simply relies on the sender by default.
As you know users are a ***** lot and will generally adopt the easiest resolve, but then the pedant will need several pigeon holes.
I apologise if it sounds patronising and clearly it would be quite wrong to suggest any such motive. I'm sure you'll understand. Many thanks BJ Graham
The significant number (just short of 8,000) demonstrates the voice that must be heeded!
In a competitive spirit there are justifiable reasons for catch-up and even associating "sender with folder" would send a clear message.
Folder management. Return to folder list where previously left or even start in the middle. Most important and a frustration to many is device access to managing folders, delete and rename. Recent updates show that progress is always active but folder management would be the "cherry" on top. You've gone this far why neglect one of the most effective and necessary tools?
If I could add a little motivation, mobile devices dominate the market and the future presents opportunities to deliberate such issues, perhaps it is time for a think-tank. I would propose Microsoft should invite anyone duly motivated to discuss - away from forums - a variety of issues specifically with the future of email and its management. I find it difficult to accept that such a challenge would produce innovation and imagination taking "the next step". I believe language will always have a role but, there remains opportunities that such a team could fuel creating incentives to aspire for obvious evolution.

Leaving the last moved folder reduces constant re-locating from start!
Auto load next email is a standard feature with most email services.
