I have an Exchange mailbox and a ton o' POP accounts. 99% of the POP mail goes into one of three folders. I'd like to be able to go to those by shortcut -- <Cntrl><Shift>P or something *I* define.




And I rarely go to the Outbox, so the fact that <Cntrl><Shift>O takes me there is a waste. So for extra credit, this should allow me to override the built-in shortcuts.

Gah, the one time I *don't* do Preview, and it eats the less-than/greater-than signs. The shortcuts were cntrl-shift-p, cntrl-shift-o.

When in the folder list, outlook will jump you to the folders as you type the first letter - although its somewhat pointless in outlook 2007 since the message list takes focus. For this reason alone, the ability to assign shortcuts would be nice.

To do it now - tab to bring the list in focus (usually 3 times) and press a letter - ie, I for inbox, O for Outbox, P for "Phs3 Inbox" and pess enter. If you have multiple folders beginning with a letter you need to press the letter multiple times.
