Creating a New Email Folder
Email folders get their own section because Outlook treats them a bit differently from other folders.
To be more specific, you cannot organize email folders into groups, but rather have to organize
them hierarchically when you create them.
When you create a new email folder, you can place it at the top level under Personal Folders — the
same level as Outlook’s default folders. You can also put it in an existing folder. You can put folders
within folders to essentially any level and thereby organize your email messages in the way that
best suits you.
Take a look at an example. Figure 18.1 shows Outlook’s default email folders. You can see that they
are all at the same level within Personal folders.
