I get many e-mails every day. Some I keep, some I delete. If I kept all my keepers in my inbox, I have thousands of e-mail messages.

So what do I do? Create folders!

Steps for Outlook Express


Click the View menu, Layout...

1. Make sure the "Folder List" checkbox is checked.
2. Right-Click the user account where you want the folder added and right click and select "New Folder". If you want a sub folder in a folder that's already there, then right-click that folder and select "New Sub-folder".
3. You'll be presented with a screen where you can name your folder. Type in "Computer Tips" (or whatever you would like to call your new folder) and click OK.

That's it! Now you can stick important e-mails in a place where you'll actually be able to locate them. To view the messages in a folder, just click the folder.
