When you create a folder by clicking the New Folder button on the Folder tab of any
module, you specify the location of the folder within your existing Outlook folder structure and
the type of items you want the folder to contain. You can create folders to contain the
following types of items:
▪ Calendar items
▪ Contact items
▪ InfoPath Form items
▪ Journal items
▪ Mail and Post items
▪ Note items
▪ Task items
The selection you make governs the folder icon that precedes its name in the Folder Pane,
the folder window layout, the ribbon tabs and commands available in the folder, and the
content of the Folder Pane when displaying the folder.

into effect when you’re away from the office.
