Organizing Messages in Folders

After you’ve read and responded to messages, you might want to keep some for future reference. With Outlook, you can organize your messages in a variety of ways.

Creating folders to organize your messages helps you avoid an accumulation of unrelated messages in your Inbox. For example, you can create a folder for each project you’re working on and store all messages regarding a particular project in its own folder. Or you can create a folder to store all messages from your boss. You can move messages to the folders manually or have Outlook move them for you.
