Lesson 5. Managing Mail > Creating and Deleting Folders

Creating and Deleting Folders

If you don't like the choice of existing folders, create your own folders in which to save your mail. To save mail in a folder, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Folders, Create Folder from the Action Bar.

  2. In the Create Folder dialog box, type the name of the new folder directly over the word Untitled in the Folder name box. Figure 5.3 shows The Create Folder dialog box in which a folder named "Human Resources" is being created.

    Figure 5.3. Type the name of the new folder in the Create Folder dialog box.

  3. The default folder type is Shared. Leave this default as your choice.

  4. Select the location for the new folder. The default location is Folders, but you can place your new folder within an existing folder by selecting an existing folder. For example, create a folder called Customers, and then create two folders under Customers called Active and Inactive (see Figure 5.4).

  5. To select a design for your folder, click on the Copy From button. By default, the design is the All Documents view, so all messages can be displayed in your new folder. But you might want your new folder to look like your drafts folder, where the column header information differs from the Inbox folder. When you click the Copy From button, select a folder on which to base your new folder.

  6. Click OK to save your changes and see your new folder in the Mail Navigation Pane (see Figure 5.4)
