In the Outlook "folder list", it is quite easy to accidentally pickup a folder and move that into another folder. There is no undo for this, and I have not found a way to prevent this.

I thought it was just me, but I recently saw a coworker do the same thing while filing mail via drag and drop. The behavior is the same using Exchange 2003 and 2007 and Outlook 2007.

I don't know of a way to lock the folders, but in Outlook 2007, you can collapse the folder list so that you don't accidentally drag them. There is a double arrow pointing left at the top of the navigation pane that can be used to collapse or expand the pane.

That's a good idea when they aren't in use. But most of the time it happens just before or just after actually filing email in the folders. – iPaulo Mar 18 '10 at 15:52
