Create and manage e-mail folders

E-mail folders bring structure to your e-mail inbox. The following system folders are default and cannot be changed:

  • Inbox
  • Sent
  • Drafts
  • Spam
  • Trash

In addition to the five system folders, you can create your own email folders and subfolders. Subsequent editing of the folder names is possible at any time.

We differentiate between normal storage folders and intelligent folders. For example, a normal storage folder can be used as an archive to keep emails organized over a longer period of time. You can copy or move emails to normal storage folders or have them sorted automatically using a filter. Intelligent folders, on the other hand, are pure search folders whose function is to find emails more quickly using links and conditions.
