2. Managing Folders
Folders are the most common and convenient way to organise your email. With Nexus, you can create as many folders as you wish, and each folder can contain messages, sub-folders, or both. Folders appear under the Mail Account you are accessing. Favourite folders for quick access may also be displayed above the Account folders.
You can create a new folder at the top level (so it appears alongside your Inbox
in your folder list), or as a sub-folder of your Inbox, or a sub-folder of another
folder. In each case, you right-click on the
name of the parent folder, and choose
[Create New Folder....]
To make a new folder at the top level, right-click
on your mailbox name (normally
your own real name) in the
Navigation Pane at the left side of the
screen, and choose
[Create New Folder...].
Click on any folder that you wish to create a sub folder within, and (as before)
right-click and choose
Folder...]. Figure 2 also shows an
example of a nested folder structure (see the folders within Top
folder in the graphic).
To delete a folder, right-click on the name
of the folder within the
Navigation Pane and choose
[Delete] from the menu. A
dialog box appears asking you to confirm folder deletion. Once confirmed the
folder, along with all messages and sub-folders contained within it, is moved to
Deleted Items folder.
Deleted folders and their contents can be restored as outlined in Restoring deleted items.
To rename a folder, right-click on its name
[Rename] from the menu. The name of the folder is then
highlighted and you can simply type in the new name.
Alternatively, to move or copy a message, select the message and click the
Move button to open the menu. You now have a choice of selecting
a recently used folder, choose
[Move to Folder…] or
The simplest way to select multiple messages is to hold down the
(Control) key on your keyboard (shift + click on a MAC) whilst clicking each
message. For more advanced methods of selecting multiple messages, please see Operations on Multiple Messages.
A new feature has been introduced in OWA 2010 (that is switched on by default) that messages where messages with the same subject line are grouped together to view as a conversation. This is similar to how other email systems work (such as Gmail). If you wish to disable this and go back to viewing other messages one at a time then click on View on the top menu bar and then Untick/tick Use Convesations
