Could you clarify why you refer to the spacebar? Which method do you use for
moving messages from folder to folder? I use shift-control-v when outside
the message and a file menu method when inside a message. In either case, a
space wouldn't even come up as part of the operation.
Meanwhile, have you considered renaming the folders? I believe placing F2 at
the folder name in the folders list would make this a simple task. When you
press F2, an edit field appears. Type in the new name, press enter, and it
should be done. To suggest an example, I have a folder I've named "JAWS
Future." If I had as many JAWS folders as you, I'd probably switch the words
to make it "Future JAWS."

Subject: easier navigation to folders in Outlook Express

Good morning.  I've been using OE for a few years, and I was wondering if
you could address an issue I have when I have a bunch of folders starting
with the same word in their names--i.e., I have almost 20 folders beginning
with the word Jaws.  When moving a message from my Inbox to a different
folder, spacebar doesn't work; I can only use first letter or first word
navigation.  My only luck is pressing the first letter or down arrow
numerous times till I land on the folder I want.  Is there a quicker way to
find the desired folder to transfer the message to, when spacebar is
disabled and there's no character to substitute for space?  Is this a Jaws
or OE issue?  Thanks for your suggestions.
