Hello,

I archive by the year. As shown here:

I do not see a way to make the IN folder, the default folder for when I hit archive, emails are sent to the 2018 > IN folder.

Can this be changed / customized?

Thanks,
Chris

No, not any more. You used to be able to choose the folder you wanted to Archive to, but they changed it to always use Archive a few months ago.

You have two choices: move to archive then periodically move the mail from Archive to In, or set up a Quick Step to move the mail. A Quick Step is better if you generally use the Archive button, not Backspace key, and if you don't have a lot of quick steps so you don't have to go looking for it.

AHH, bummer.... Setting up a quick step was very painless :)

I just wonder if there's a way to disable the backspace archivng? when I was using pop3 I got use to using the backspace key to archive things.
