Folders allow users to organize mail that they wish to keep, without cluttering up the Inbox.

The Folders link on the orange toolbar lets you create a new folder, rename an existing folder, or delete an existing folder.

The Quarantine folder is where potential junk mail is delivered, check this frequently as legitimate mail may wind up here.

Don't forget to periodically delete copies of message you have composed that are saved in the Sent Items folder.

Select the box next to an email you wish to move,
then use the
[Move to this folder] button
