Order of email accounts

    I have multiple email accounts configured in WLM. One is office account while
    others are personal. When I do Send/Receive (Sync), personal email accounts
    start downloading first followed by office account at the end. Sometimes I
    have to wait quite long to see office emails when the link is slow. I know I
    can select manually accounts one by one, but I want to know how to change the
    order (or priority) of accounts the way I want?

    Go to Tools>accounts>select your Office account>properties>General tab,
    prefix the accounts friendly name, (top line), with A-(existing name).
    WLM checks accounts in alphabetical order, so prefix any others with B-, C-
    etc

    I had not spotted that and it's really useful. For example it is great to
    have Outbox immediately under Quick views instead of way down and out of
    sight. Many thanks Walter. - Doug

    Oops - spoke too soon - the changes don't persist - they are lost when the
    system is re-started. Doug.

    Hate to disappoint you, Doug.
    Out-box stays where it is, at the bottom, above Storage folders.
    No matter where you have moved it, next time you open WLM, Outbox is back to
    the bottom.

    Does it "stick" for you? Most people find that, while they can order the
    accounts, they can't order other folders. In my experience, the order is:

    Quick views
    User defined accounts
    Outbox
    Storage folders

    That general order is immutable. Within the user defined accounts, I can
    sort the accounts; but, as a group, they always come back between "Quick
    vies", and "Outbox", after closing WLMail, and restarting.

    Within the "Storage foldes", "Drafts", "Sent items", and "Deleted items"
    will always be at the top, with the user defined folders listed
    alphabetically after.

    Hmm, mine are holding, but I just moved the Account mailboxes, not the
    Outbox.

    Email accounts retain their 'moved to' position amongst the email accounts' section, the other sections(Quick Views, Outbox,
    Storage folders) do not and resort to their default locations.
