Using FoldersSwitching views and customizing them with filters are two useful ways to organize e-mail. But if you work on many projects simultaneously, you may find that you want to store your e-mail by project. By creating folders to store messages, you can categorize them and keep them better organized. As an example, suppose that at Ferguson and Bardell, you might deal with both coworkers and clients. Let's create folders for these two categories now.
More about filters and filtering junk e-mail
Some businesses and organizations send mass mailings via e-mail just as they do via regular mail. If you don't want to receive junk e-mail, you can tell Outlook to automatically move it to a folder other than the Inbox or to color-code it. With the Inbox displayed, click the Organize button on the toolbar. Click the Junk E-Mail option and then select the desired options from the adjacent drop-down lists. After you make your selections, click the Turn On buttons. To designate a specific address as junk e-mail, right-click the message header and choose Junk E-Mail and then Add To Junk Senders List from the shortcut menu. (You can filter e-mail messages with adult content in the same way.)
