Creating Folders in Outlook

Creating folders in Microsoft Outlook is an easy way to organize your e-mail. It is important to note, however, that unless you are a faculty or staff member using Microsoft Exchange, these folders are only available on the machine you create them on.

1. Right click on the "Inbox" folder and select "New Folder" from the drop-down menu. 
    


2. Type the name of the new folder in the blank field that appears under the inbox folder. 

    
3. Press the enter key to finish typing. You can now move items to this folder and/or make rules to move items automatically to this folder. 
*Note: There is a point when creating a rule that you can also create a new folder
