When you start Microsoft Outlook 2010 for the first time, you’ll notice that among other things, the Navigation Pane is a little different.
First, the folders are in a new order. The design goal is to make the most common default folders — Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, and Deleted Items — easy to find while moving the remainder of the folders into an alphabetized group below. You might also notice that the name of your mailbox has changed from “Mailbox - <your name>” to your e-mail address. We made this change to help you distinguish accounts when multiple accounts are configured in Outlook.
We modernized the general look of the Navigation Pane. Unnecessary lines, gradients, and headers are gone. Windows-style expand/collapse widgets replace the former widgets. (Click the triangles to see your folders.)
We also removed the module headers, such as “Mail,” at the top of the Navigation Pane. Commands not directly related to folder navigation are gone or moved into the ribbon, including:
Here’s a general comparison of the Navigation Pane in Outlook 2007 and 2010:
Also, if you have configured multiple accounts in Outlook, you can drag the Inbox for each account into Favorites.
We hope these changes make your Outlook experience faster and more enjoyable.

J'ai enregistré plusieurs fois Outlook 2010. Très facile à employer, mais un problème récurent se profile chaque fois ma connection E-Mail (sunrise) me bloque les Flux ( RSS) et m'enpêche de recevoir d'autres E-mail.J'ai essayé de vider cette boîte, mais elle affiche chaque fois vide. J'ai tout contrôlé mes connections avec Sunrise et tout est ok. je pense fermement que le problème vient de Outlook 2010. Dommage car quand je passe sur Outlook prof. 2007, je n'ai pas ce problème. Si vous pouviez m'aider ce sera un grand merci
I would be happy to know what's the reasoning behind creating a data file for each account? also, is the files locations going to be in 'my documents' is the new location? I thought that Microsoft is recommending to use the AppData folder for applications data.
Nice article, but what happened to being able to have Public Folders as part of your Mail favorites? There's no way to add a public folder to the list of Favorites in 2010...
How about getting rid of the ribbon? Outlook 2007 was the best version of the software yet and largely because the ribbon is not part of the software. Please give us the ability to remove the ribbon.
Nice features. Outlook is beginning to look more like Notes :) Our users will appreciate these changes. I wish you had some more folders created. Will user created folders appear below the system folders (i.e. below RSS Feeds or Search Folders) or will Junk, News, Outbox, RSS and Search folders still be mixed in alphabetically with user created folders? If the latter, it would be nice to have an option to at least put user created folders in a folder category where they can be grouped together. It still seems messy to have system folders mixed in with user-created folders.
Is there a way to create your own navigation pane button? When you are have many mail folders, sometimes it would be great to have the ability to create a new "Navigation pane button" for a mailbox other than your primary inbox account.
I liked the ability to retrieve my email into a single inbox - this is awkward, due to synching problems on mobile devices. Since the messages in my personal email account are now removed from my POP3 server and stored locally, I can no longer use Exchange as my "single point of sync" from my mobile device.
I like the way Outlook now flows, but this "Spam" folder grabs the wrong emails. Emails aren't listed in the "Junk" folder, and I can never open these "Spam" reports that actually contain important emails! WHERE is that folder????
Is there a way that I can configure Outlook to send emails out via particular smtp server based on the connection it has made?
Example: if it is connected to the SSID 'Black' I need it to go out smtp.biztalk-info.com
If it is connected to the SSID 'Brown' I need it go to out through smtp.west.cox.net
In Outlook 2010, is there a way to "lock" the positioning of the folder tree inside of the Navigation Pane's Mail Folders? I'm not talking about a password protect lock - I'm talking about a positioning and modification lock on the folder tree. Several times a week when working with email, I accidentally move/drag mail folders inside of other mail folders. It's really easy to do, particularly when you have a multiple monitor setup like I do. I'd like to see a lock that would prevent the moving or modification of folders in the tree.
Please tell me how to get auto correct (with auto capitalization at beginning of sentence). Thank you, Joan
I've used Outlook 2010 for a while now, and so far I'm very dissatisfied with it. Did your team bother to run any of these changes by people that actually have to use Outlook to eke out a living before you decided to change everything? Please, please, PLEASE - allow users to reorder the folders in the navigation pane. For the past several years my folders have been in a particular order that works best for my work environment. With your new reordering "feature" several of my most important folders are now pushed off the bottom of my screen, so unless I buy a monitor with vertical orientation I don't want to use Outlook 2010. All I want is to be able to move a couple of folders higher or lower in the tree – that should be a simple to do and yet Outlook prevents it. Also - your coloring themes for Outlook 2010 now cause the background color for the navigation pane to appear as though it's greyed-out, which is highly annoying.
Can you hide the Favorites section altogether? I think it takes up valuable real estate in the navigation sidebar. It would be nice if this was a configurable option for those who do want a Favorites section.
I miss the arrow in the "Search Inbox" entry field that allowed retrieving recent searches. I now have to go to the Search ribbon section to get this, which I won't end up doing - I'll just retype my search string again. Please bring that quick access feature back.
Again, as is usually the case, this seems like change for the sake of change. totally ignoring the number of users that have been using outlook for years, expecting to see something in a particular order, and having it changed for no good reason. So, now the simplest of tasks takes longer because I have to remember which group my inbox is in, God forbid it remain filed under a freakin' "I"
