Is there any way to move multiple Outlook folders at one time? If I have a bunch of folders that are subfolders of my Contracts folder and I want to move some of them but not all to a different folder, what's the easiest way to do that?

AFAIK you treat them exactly the same as any other Windows
item, you select the chosen folders, using Ctrl key, & then drag
& drop them onto the folder you want.

I don't see a way to do this in Outlook. In Outlook 2007 even if I show the Folder List so I have that nice tree view of folders, it doesn't let me Ctrl click or Shift click so I don't know how to select multiple folders. Is there a different place in Outlook to choose more than one folder at a time?

Ok, I think I've found a tool to help with this. It's called Pandali Folder Master for Outlook (http://pandali.com/pfm.html) and it allows you to select multiple folders in an Outlook-like tree view, then you can move, copy, or delete.

It adds a toolbar button into Outlook for easy access. Seemed to work ok on my PST. It's still in beta though.

Computers have a mind of their own. The intel processor that's inside of your laptop at times thinks that it's smarter than you. You're starting to believe that it actually is. Dealing with technical issues at work can consumer large amounts of time and make you lose money fast.
