You would start creating your personal folders by clicking New on the File menu. After that, follow the procedure shown in this illustration.
Once you create Personal Folders, it's a good idea to create some folders inside it—you're doing this because you want to get organized, right? For example, a folder named Temporary can be a useful place to put messages you need to keep but don't expect to keep for long.
After you've got your filing system worked out, you can start moving messages by:
- Right-clicking them and then clicking Move (this is the only way to move a message while it's open for viewing).
- Creating rules to move them automatically.
We'll show you how to move by right-clicking in the practice session at the end of this lesson.
