CHAPTER 31. Using Outlook Express > Organizing Messages with Folders

Organizing Messages with Folders

By default, Outlook Express includes five top-level mail folders. You cannot delete these basic mail folders, which perform the following crucial functions:

  • All incoming messages hit the Inbox first; use the Message Rules to file or process messages automatically as they arrive.

  • Mail that you've sent goes to the Outbox until the next time you exchange messages with your mail server.

  • By default, a copy of every message you send goes to the Sent Items folder. To change this setting, choose Tools, Options; click the Send tab; and uncheck this option.

  • When you delete a message, Outlook Express moves it to the Deleted Items folder. An option on the General tab lets you empty this folder each time you exit. By default, though, this folder stays full until you right-click on its icon and choose Empty Folder.

  • The Drafts folder stores messages you've composed and saved but haven't yet sent.
