One reason some people are hesitant to give up multiple folders is that they currently use subfolders. And the problem is that Outlook Categories has no provision to create subcategories. But really that’s not a problem. That’s because you can apply multiple categories to an email, and then find emails by searching for those multiple category combinations.
I have created a free video that shows how to do this: how to mimic subfolders using multiple category assignments. Go to this page (it’s the sales page for the paid video site) and then scroll all the way down to free video #28 to see that. It’s a free Preview, and available even if you have not purchased this video set. The video starts with a review of using Categories in a single folder.
