Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how to download emails into separate folders when using outlook with exchange. Right now, I have 3 email accounts and they all download to the same folder. Is there a way so that they automatically download to separate folders so I don't have to sort them myself?

Heya, lkitty, and welcome to Geeks to Go...

I’m going to assume that you already have your folders created. If not, create one folder for each account that’s going to be separated.

Now, open Outlook and go to Tools | Rules and Alerts
  • Click New Rule…
  • Select the radio button labelled Start from a blank rule
  • Select Check Messages when they arrive and click Next >
  • Select through the specified account, then in the bottom pane click on the link that says specified and choose the account you’re dealing with and click Next >
  • Select move it to the specified folder then in the bottom pane click on the link that says specified and choose the folder for the account you’re dealing with and click Next >
  • Click Finish
Create one of those for each account you have and it should sort the mail for you as it downloads it.
