There are several folders in which messages and other data may be stored in UAlbany Mail. All of the folders may be viewed from the Folder List View in Outlook and the appropriate subgroups may be viewed in each of the other Outlook views. The following is a summary of these folders. Other folders may be manually created within any folder for more granular sorting.

To access the Folder List view you first open up Outlook and go down to the bottom task bar and click the " ... " button next to Tasks:

Then once you click that button, it will have a pop-out menu appear and you will then need to click Folders:
