If you have a few e-mail accounts, your folder pane can quickly become very crowded, making you waste precious time trying to navigate to that particular folder that you need and use a lot.
There is a solution for this problem and that is – make any folder you like a favorite! It will then appear at the top of your folder pane and very easy to find!
If the Favorites area does not appear, switch to Mail and click View | Folder Pane | Favorites.
You can now add any folder to your Favorites by right-clicking it in your Folder pane and click Show in Favorites.
Bonus – you can even set a Search Folder to be a Favorite so it is easy to find and use!
