Creating a New Folder in Office 365

Tags PSU

The Mail section of the Navigation Pane shows the basic Outlook folders:

  • Inbox
  • Clutter (unless you choose to turn it off)
  • Drafts
  • Sent Items
  • Deleted Items
  • Junk E-Mail
  • RSS Feeds
  • Trash

To add a new folder, right-click on the folder in which you want the new folder to live. Choose New Folder from the menu that appears. An Untitled folder will be created within the folder you selected. Give your new folder a useful name.

You can move a folder by dragging & dropping. When you drop a folder, it becomes a "child" of the folder on which you drop it.

You'll find that Outlook automatically alphabetizes your folders.

You can move messages to folders manually, or use Rules to have them placed automatically as they arrive.
