Folders and Organization – Outlook for Web (OWA)

The University of Vermont has recently moved its email and calendaring services to Microsoft Exchange. If your account has been migrated, you can use this documentation to create folders, subfolders, and move your mail.

Creating Folders

  1. To create a new folder, right-click on your name in the folder list, then select “Create new folder“.

  2. Create a label for your new folder. In this example, our folder is labeled “FiscalYear2016”. Hit the “Enter” key to create the folder.

    1. Subfolders may help you better organize your Mail. You can create a subfolder by right-clicking on your top-level folder and then selecting the “Create new subfolder” option. In this example we’re creating a subfolder of “Projects” in our “FiscalYear2016” folder.

Moving Mail to Folders

  1. Moving Mail from one folder to another is easy and intuitive in OWA. Select the messages you wish to move by hovering over and clicking the “Checkbox” for each message.
    1. Ctrl + Click (PC) and Command + Click (Mac) also allow you to select more than one message.
  2. Once you’ve selected the desired messages, click and drag any one of those messages to the folder you wish to move the group of messages. In this example, we’re moving two messages to our “Projects” subfolder.

That’s it. You’ve successfully created folders to organize your mail!
