You can also move the message from the Inbox to another folder. This is useful when you want to
organize received email messages. You learn more about working with Outlook folders in Chapter 18.
The basic steps for moving an open message are as follows:
Click the Move to Folder button on the message window ribbon.
Select Other Folder from the menu. Outlook displays the Move Item To dialog box as
shown in Figure 4.7.
Click the destination folder. Or, to create a new folder, click the New button. Details on
creating a new folder are presented next.
Click OK. The message is closed and moved to the specified folder.
Moving an email message to another folder.
When you are moving an email message to another folder, you are given the opportunity to create
a new folder. When you click the New button in the Move Item To dialog box, Outlook opens the
Create New Folder dialog box, shown in Figure 4.8. Then:
Enter the name for the new folder in the Name box.
Make sure that Mail and Post Items is selected in the Folder Contains list.
