Default Color coding folders

Either my googling skillz are ebbing low, or what seems like it would be a fairly easy thing to do isn't.

Can someone tell me how to "color code" folders in Outlook 2010 (using an Exchange 2010 server, if that matters).

I have a user who has a couple hundred folders, most of them nested at least 3-4 levels deep. For obvious reasons, she wants to be able to color code them.

Using category colors would be an acceptable option, IF that was possible....

Default Re: Color coding folders

Does not appear to be native, but changing the icon is possible with code:

You can colour code emails within a folder using Conditional Formatting in a view but thats not really wat you want
