How can I move an Outlook (IMAP) e-mail folder from IMAP to a local folder? There are three root folders in Outlook (IMAP, Personal, and Archive). I do not want to move it into Personal or Archive, I want a fourth entry called "Work" or something similar.
Below are instructions for how to add a top level folder in Outlook with a name of your choice.
You will need to create a new Outlook Data File which creates another "Personal Folders" listing in Outlook.
- Under the File pull down menu, select New, and then Outlook Data File
You can change the name of the folder using the following steps:
- Right-click on the newly created "Personal Folders" (it will appear at the bottom of the list)
- Choose Properties
- Click Advanced
- In the Name field, change the name of the .pst file to something descriptive
- Click Apply and OK through the windows to close them
