email Folders, needing to have main folders turn bold when subfolders receive mail.

Not open for further replies.

Justin Lance

Hello all,

I have four main folders where all my email is assigned to.

However, when I recieve mail in those folders, all of it goes to the specific subfolders within them.

I want the main four folders to turn bold when I recieve mail in the subfolders, how do I set this up?

Outlook doesn't do that, unfortunately. You might have more success using search folders to aggregate the content within the subfolders.
