Creating a new folder to hold email items.
Creating a New Non-Email Folder
Non-mail folders — those for tasks, calendar, journal, and contacts — are handled a bit differently
than mail folders. Rather than organize folders by placing them in other folders, as you do with
mail folders, you use groups . First, here are the steps to create a non-mail folder:
Click the appropriate button in the navigation pane corresponding to where you want to
add a new folder — Calendar, Contacts, and so on.
Select Folder from the File menu, then select New Folder from the next menu. Outlook
displays the Create New Folder dialog box (see Figure 18.5). The folder for the type of
item you selected in step 1 — Tasks in the figure, for example — will be highlighted in
the folder list.
Enter the name of the new folder in the Name box.
Make sure that the Folder Contains list displays the appropriate type of item for the
folder you are creating.
After you create a non-email folder, it is displayed near the top of the navigation pane along with
other folders, including the default one, for that type of item. Figure 18.6 shows an example for
Tasks after creating two new task folders called Work-related and Personal.
