I have seen this question in regards to bulk renaming of file folders, but not bulk renaming of personal folders in outlook - so the question is - is there anyway to bulk rename personal folders in Outlook 2007? What I would like to do is select several folders at once and make the same change to each of them - for example if I have several folders named123.01, 123.02, 123.03, etc. I would like to be able to change the 123 to 132 without having to rename each folder on an individual basis

I'd say VBA. You can open your personal folders (PST) file and loop through the folder objects, renaming those that match your desired string. I don't think there's a OTS tool for this.
