Filtering messages

As you are looking at your Inbox, there will be times when Arrange By or your other methods of sorting emails won't be enough. Filters allow you to narrow down the messages to show just the ones that fits your needs. The Filter button is on the right-side of the Home Ribbon. Click on the little drop-down arrow at its right to view your options. For example, if I only want to see my Unread Messages, select it from this list. What makes filters special is that they are cumulative. Now that I can see just my unread messages, I can further narrow them down to just the ones that also have attachments.

I have many other options as well. To remove my filters, I can just click on the Filter button or at the bottom of the drop-down, I can select Clear All Filters and all the messages will reappear. Of all the email management tools in Outlook, filters are the simplest way of sifting through your messages to find ones that meet multiple criteria.
