Folders in Outlook 2013 for Windows

This article applies to: Outlook 2013 for Windows


The Mail section of the Folders Pane shows the basic Outlook folders:

  • Deleted Items
  • Drafts
  • Inbox
  • Junk E-Mail
  • Outbox
  • RSS Feeds
  • Sent Items

To add a new folder, right-click on any folder and choose New Folder from the menu that appears. Give your folder a name, and choose where you want the folder to be placed. Your new folder will be created as a "child" of the folder you select under Select where to place the folder. Click OK to create the folder.

You'll find that Outlook automatically alphabetizes your folders.

You can move messages to folders manually, or use Rules to have them placed automatically as they arrive.
