Part 8. Getting Online > Organizing Mailboxes

Organizing Mailboxes

In Mail, select View, Show Mailboxes if mailboxes are not visible.

Click the + button at the bottom of the drawer to create a new mailbox.

Enter a name for the mailbox and click OK.

To create a mailbox inside another mailbox, click a mailbox name and then click the + button.

INTRODUCTION

If you get a lot of email, you'll quickly find your In box filling up. Creating a system of mailboxes in which you can file all that email will save you time in the long run because it makes finding what you want when you need it easier. You can nest mailboxes within other mailboxes to set up as complex a system as you need.


HINT

Like Parent, Like Child

If a mailbox is selected when you click the + button you type the name of an existing mailbox, then a slash, and then the new name. The new mailbox is created as a child of the selected mailbox—in other words, it is within the selected one.


To move a mailbox inside another mailbox, drag and drop it into position.

Ctrl-click a mailbox and choose Rename from the contextual menu to change its name.

Ctrl-click a mailbox and choose Delete from the contextual menu to remove it.
