Hello There.
I know that outlook has the ability to automatically move email
in the inbox to specific folders.

I also spend far to much time sorting mail in the inbox therefore
i would like to have a folder called "read mail" .
As I open a mail I will decide to keep or delete
Keep will go to the "read Mail" folder and delete to the delete folder.
What i would like to have is that all files in "read mail" are automatically
moved to sprcified folders- the same as outlook does with the inbox
items
I cant find how to make the automatic sorting function work on a different folder
than the inbox folder.I would like to sort the mail in the "read mail " folder
can anyone help??

thank you
fred
 
Or... use your rules as mail arrives and the Unread Search folder to read it. Hit Del key to delete mail as you read it - everything else is filed.

Or... forget using Outlook like it's a file cabinet and stop using rules. Leave everything in the inbox and create a quick step to file mail into a folder named "Completed" - use it and the Del key as you read mail. While you could use a Quick Step for a bunch of different folders, i think it's easier if you limit the number of folders you file to.

There are also some 3rd party file utilities, such as quick file QuickFile - Instantly File, Organize & Find Emails
