Outlook 2010 - Search Folders position

So I finally migrated to 2010. :rolleyes: One annoyance, for which I sincerely hope there's a solution: "Search Folders" is positioned alphabetically somewhere in the middle of regular folders, and not at the end, as it used to be. Is there any way to make it display Search Folders at the bottom again (or on top -- as long as it isn't in the middle)? (OK, its position is acceptable in the default PST, but with all the others, it's kind of annoying to have it in the middle.)
In 2010 it should be in alpha order - inbox/drafts/deleted will be on top, out of order, but after that, they should be in alpha order. Oh, you have folders that begin with T-Z - no, you can't move Search folder to the end like it was in Outlook 2007. Sorry. (Outlook 2013 lets you rearrange the folder order.)

you can add individual search folders to the Favorite list so they are easier to find.
Crap. Well, at least they somehow managed to bring back the speed of Outlook 2000. ;) (And the 2013 edition brings back some kind of a DOSsy look... :rolleyes: )

One other thing I noticed... I've had both SENT and RECEIVED columns displayed in a few folders for ages. Now they both display exactly the same time/date. Is this a bug, or has these two variables moved to another field?
The sent/Received dates sounds like a bug - at least some should be different, if only by a minute or two. The modified and received dates should match, at least initially.
I'll see if it's anything different with the dates after a reboot -- there is no difference now, not even a minute.

BTW, where did they hide the good old-fashioned item/message properties? I was only able to find the one that displays full message headers (I think it used to be called "Message Options"). I know there was another property sheet called "Properties", which would display other parameters, e.g. including received/sent/modified dates & times.
Thanks. I guess it confused me because it behaves differently on the main QAT (where it opens a menu with three options, among them Folder Properties), so I never got to putting it on a message's QAT.
