RE: Outlook folder

Hi Kubra,

Thanks again for your patience. In my Outlook for Mac, I right-click on the Inbox, then I select New Folder, which I name immediately. This appears below my Inbox. When I want to move messages into the subfolder, I left-click drag and drop. If I want to copy a message, I right-click (or double-tap on the trackpad) the message, go down to Move, and then I select Copy to Folder. I type in the name of the folder and click Copy.

This method works well for me. I hope it helps.

Kind regards
Marius Barnard
