Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a folder to the Favorites list, part of Outlook 2010: Effective Email Management.
We have created subfolders in our Inbox, and when the Inbox is collapsed, it's…really easy to lose track of the fact that we have those subfolders.…So we could have messages in them and totally forget that we have an unread item…sitting in the OilFest2010/ OilFest Administration folder.…When you create subfolders, they are so easily ignored that you might want to…highlight some of them.…This is something that I do frequently.…For example, if I am working currently on OilFest2010, I might want these two…folders actually to appear in my list of Favorite Folders.…
I am going to see them then anytime that I am in my Mail Items.…It doesn't matter whether they are one layer deep or two or three or four or…five or six or seven layers deep, because you can have folders that deep.…You could have so many layers of folders that you actually can't find…your messages anymore.…So that's something that you want to watch out for, but no matter how deep…down a folder is, you can take that folder, and you can say I want to show it in my Favorites.…
