Sorting folders

In the mail sidebar, under an account, there several mail folders; i.e. archive, sent, trash, etc. Is there some way to sort these folders? Manually moving does not work as it attempts to nest the folders, which is not what I want to do.

Unfortunately not.

The system folders (Inbox, Sent, Trash etc.) have a set order and will be listed first. After that, any folders you create on the same level will be listed alphabetically.

Thank you for the reply.
