How to Create a New Mail Folder

By Jessica Reed

A mail folder allows you to sort and store email without having to leave them in your inbox. You can keep track of business emails and letters from friends by giving each person or company their own folder. This way, you never lose an email and you won't have to sort through them every time you check your email.

Step 1

Log in to your email account.

Step 2

Find the section labeled "My Folders."

Step 3

Click the "Add" button under "My Folders."

Step 4

Enter a name for your new folder.

Step 5

Click "OK."

Tips & Warnings

  • Name your folder something that relates to the kind of emails you'll put in it.
