    How to group multiple mailboxes by folder type (Inbox, Sent, etc)?


    I am using Outlook 2016, and I have several email accounts and I hate the way Outlook handles multiple email accounts.
    By default Outlook mailbox like this:
    [email protected]
    Inbox
    Drafts
    Sent Items
    Deleted Items
    Junk
    Outbox

    [email protected]
    Inbox
    Drafts
    Sent Items
    Deleted Items
    Junk
    Outbox

    But I would like them to be organized like this:
    Inbox
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Drafts
    [email protected]
    [email protected]n.com

    Sent Items
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Deleted Items
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Junk
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Outbox
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Is this possible? Thanks in advance!

    I think the best you can do is right click on the folders you want from each account and add them to favorites, they will appear above your account list and you can drag and drop them into any order you want.

    Thanks for the fast reply z3r010!

    Yeah, I thought about doing that. Sadly, that's more of a bandage.

    I really wish Outlook would support this feature. Thunderbird supports it. I would even be willing to use a third party add-on to have this feature.

    I actually pin mine as favorites.

    You can link your Inboxes to appear as a single unified box, but Outlook won't let you group anything across accounts.
