Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has found a way to categorise the folder pane in outlook. I have lots of folders and it would be good to allocate colour.

Hi Diane
Don't suppose you ever found that addin by any chance? I've just started using Outlook 2021 and am finding it dreadfully pale and grey. Obviously I can use conditional formatting to brighten up and clarify the email headers but, as Sid said, it would be great to be able to colour code the folders in the folder pane as well. Any other suggestions welcome too!

No, I haven't found it - it not in my utilities list, which means the url I had wasn't valid and I deleted it from my list. Sorry.

Thanks for trying anyway. What a shame it doesn't exist any longer.

Thanks for your post but I fear colourful PowerPoint Templates, no matter how good they are, will not help to solve this issue with the appearance of Outlook 2021.
