Outlook Organization (Folders, Rules, Etc)

I have some downtime this week and my company just upgraded our stations to Office '19. I want to use this as an opportunity to implement some best practices for outlook (or any organizational tips you all may have).

Anyone have any tips for someone who has previously just used the vanilla inbox (no rules, no task)?

I've always had a question box pop up whenever I'm sending an email outside of my organisation to double check whether I want to send it. It has saved my life countless times (there's some VBA code you need to insert into Outlook- Google it). 

Other than that, I think folders are a complete waste of time.

More about sending to the wrong person. Outlook's address auto fill function can be dangerous, and one can easily enter the wrong name or send to the wrong person with a similar name. I've done it myself and I've seen countless others do it as well. This just adds in one additional layer of checks that can save you from embarrassment later on, or much worse if you're sending out confidential data.
