When using send and file mail, a pop up box is presented with the folder structure of the user.
The whole folder structure is open, and having many folders and sub folders makes it time consuming to browse down to the one needed to file the new mail. Also closing folders to get the folder structure less long, is also time consuming.
It would be much faster to file the mail if the folder structure tree were closed, and the user instead could open the part of the folder structure needed.
Wayne Gibbons has commented on this: I had a look at the @Picklist function (which is the function which that button is calling) and there didn't seem to be any documented option to control that.

Do you know that you can type any part of a folder name once the list is displayed, and the list will move to that folder.

It would be nice to have hot keys or buttons for the complete collapsing / expanding of the folder structure.

Thanks for the tip of typing part of the name of the folder. That's useful.

There are hot keys for this. Shift + (plus) and Shift - (minus) expand and collapse all of the folders in the list, though there are some glitches in how it operates and should be reported as a bug. Buttons would be much more intuitive and user-friendly.

Vlad, post your idea for buttons and I will vote for it.

@2 @4 Yeah... a button on the dialog box could be useful. Still prefer the typing aspect for jumping down to the folder. But we all have users/clients that prefer clicks to keyboards shortcuts.
