I am using Windows Live Hotmail. I have added folders in the past but now I cannot add folders. Supposedly, you go to "Move To" and from there you are supposed to get an option to add folders but I see no option.

Supposedly, you can make the File option available by hitting Ctrl+M but this option does not work for me.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

For anyone else who has a similar problem...

I am using Windows Live Hotmail. There is another product called Windows Live Mail. The menu systems on both programs are not alike.

If you are using Windows Live Hotmail...

Go to Manage Folders, go to New, type in name of folder.

Hi HowdeeDoodee,

Your Hotmail account is an HTTP account, so what you're trying to
do can't be done. It's part of the trade-off between the joys of
synchronization (i.e. what you see on the web is mirrored in WLMail) and the
flexibility of POP mail.

You could use filters on the web to divert mail about the Times to a Times
folder and so on. Then, in WLMail, set up the folders as you would like them
under Storage folders. Every so often, mark all the messages in your Hotmail
or move them (if you don't) to the appropriate Storage folder.


Please reply after following above mentioned steps.
