If you use Shift plus F6 to go to the tree view, you can use the context menu to rename a folder.

Mario, Highlight the folder you want to rename, press alt+Q, type rename and arrow down to rename folder. That is the most reliable way I've found. Some folders cannot be renamed such as the inbox or the outbox.

it's actually a folder that he keeps certain emails in.

thinking about it, I wonder if there is a shortcut to rename a folder instead of using the f2 key or the context menu? anybody know?

I am wondering, is it a folder or a Data File he wants to change the name of? If it's a data file, the group of folders that contains the data for an entire email address, the actions are a little bit different. In that case you'll have to go to account settings for that email address, and you can change the name there.

This may not be this person's problem, and, if not, I'm sorry. I've actually had someone come to me with the same problem while calling it a folder before, so I thought I would throw it out there.
