    Trying to get up to speed on my new phone. I had help setting up my email app to my Exchange email account today, and it seems to sync just fine with my messages. The problem is that I have dozens of subfolders in my Outlook to help separate and save various emails from various projects. Many incoming emails are moved to various subfolders automatically with "Rules" for me to read later based upon priority.

    As far as I can tell the Droid only provides an alphabetical listing of all these subfolders which is difficult to manage. So if I want to jump to a folder starting with the letter "V" it's a lot of scrolling down each time I want to view the contents of that subfolder. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    is it an Exchange server account? if so, i use Touchdown. i have LOTS of subfolders, and the stock email on my D1 was cumbersome to use, as well. i bought Touchdown ($20, but well worth it!!) and found that the organization of subfolders was much better! i highly recommend it. you can download a free app for a 7 day trial just to check it out and decide if you want to buy it...

    for example, you can choose which subfolders you want it to sync. so, if a project is dormant for a while, and you aren't actively using it, you can choose not to sync it. also, when you tap it to switch to a subfolder, you can either scroll through the folders or you can tap "recent", and it will only show you the folders you have been using recently. this cuts down on scrolling through all the folders.

    also, unlike the stock Droid email (at least on the D1), TD allows you to attach a signature line to outgoing emails. it also has a calendar and contacts folder built in, separate from the Droid contacts and corporate calendar. they work pretty well, altho i still like the Droid contacts better...

    Moxier, RoadSync, HTC Work Email. I can't recall which ones offer the ability to choose subfolders to sync though.
