How can I order my Sane folders to appear towards the top of my folder list?

How can I get my Sane folders to be close to my Inbox?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could see your sane folders near your Inbox without having to nest or rename them? Well with some email clients, you can do that. What essentially happens is certain email clients allow you to “Favorite” certain folders so that they appear in their own list up towards your Inbox. Not all email clients have this handy feature but we’re going to show you the ones that do.
