In the Favorite Folders pane, e-mail messages are displayed in folders; however, the messages aren't actually moved to the folder in the Favorite Folders pane. The messages are still in their original folders but are also accessible in the Favorite Folders pane, where they are more noticeable and more easily organized to suit your purposes.
A folder in the Favorite Folders pane "mirrors" its counterpart elsewhere in the All Mail Folders pane. Messages are still stored in their original folders, but you can view them in Favorite Folders.
Keep folders that you use often where you can see them at a glance. You can easily see new items waiting for your attention or check on important details.
For example, to check to see if you forgot to copy (Cc) a coworker on a message yesterday, you can add the Sent Items folder to the Favorites Folders pane so that it is quick and easy to find the message.
Take advantage of the flexibility of this folder list and make it into whatever you need to do your work on a daily basis. The folders don't even have to be in alphabetical order the way that they do in the All Mail Folders pane.
