So yesterday I got rid of most of my subfolders (besides my "Keep" folder for important stuff that I don't want archived) and it looks better.
BTW - if you delete folders from exchange, you will have to empty your deleted items folder before it will be reflected on you phone, and then it might cause a force close of the email app, but it opens right back up fine.

Yea, with managing projects I can't really delete any of my folders (and sub-folders..never know when I need to get to that info. Also, I have access to a former employees box (in case I need to retrieve info) and that is all bundled into my list too. At least if it was drop down style, it would be easier to look through and navigate.

The lack phone dialing from calendar makes me mad - I have lots of conference calls, and this is a big step back.
Also, you can't control which folders sync or when. Drafts doesn't seem to sync at all.
Don't get me started on the colors, hard to see unread messages, and lack of "Mark all" functions.

As much as I love the Captivate, I think it lacks a few things:
Compared to my WinMo HTC HD2, . . . . .
- I will miss the Sense UI method of displaying the E-Mail messages like sheets of paper that you can scroll through
- I will most miss SPELL CHECK!!!!!!
- ARROW KEYS to go back and edit!!!
- larger screen for typing in
- and very importantly - SYNCHING with my regular Outlook for contacts and calendar events!!!!
Luckily though, concerning the contacts, I was able to use BT to BT between my HTC HD2 and the Captivate to transfer over all my contacts INCLUDING the pictures I had stored. Boy was that a blessing!!!!!! Otherwise, I don't think there would have been any other way to do that

I mentioned this in another thread, but the e-mail client and the "daily briefing" widget (which has to take up a WHOLE home "page" no matter how much info there is, i.e can't add anything else to that page) really, really suck.
I know it is the TouchWiz interface, and it makes me miss HTC's Sense more and more. I hope we get some custom roms soon with Sense, or else I think I'll be going back to the Aria.
I mean, how can there not be a "move to folder" option??
The only thing that is keeping me on the Captivate at this point is the screen - it is truly remarkable. I have had several people come up to me and ask me what kind of phone I was using, becasue they noticed the screen from accross the room.

Another question regarding corporate emails on exchange
we get emails that have an excel table copy/pasted onto the message body itself. an iphone renders this message beautifully, but other phones simply show it all jumbled up. same with the captivate. is there a setting to render this message similar to the way the iphone does, or is that simply a limitation? from what i am gathering from this thread, it seems like it's a limitation...

updated to add:
Okay, so I tested it with both exchange and gmail.
Exchange took the data in the spreadsheet and reformatted it.
Gmail, however, behaved as it should: it showed the imbedded spreadsheet in the body of the email.
So clearly this is a limitation of the touchwiz native email app.

What's really cool about QuickOffice that I have noticed as well is that if you are looking at a document with a lot of large elements in it (like tables, pictures) that extend off to the side of your screen, you can scroll them from side to side independently of the rest of the document, so your reading text stays put. Makes it somewhat interactive and you don't have to continuously find your place again. It's really cool.
