Posted Date: 24-Apr-2013
In this article, I am going to highlight the steps required to add an unread folder in outlook 2010. Please read the below article in detail to know more about what unread folder is and its importance in Outlook.
Unread folder in an outlook serves as a folder which keeps all the email items which have not been read by the user. It's important to have this folder in outlook to keep a track of the important emails requiring more attention and time to read and respond.
Most users do not add this folder in their outlook. This folder is present in outlook however requires a manual mapping. This serves to be helpful for the users of high profile who get emails in bulk everyday to read and respond.
This scenario is not common however, if a user feels a need to add this folder, the steps to add it can't be found so easily. I have tried to outline the steps in outlook 2010 and 2007 versions. In outlook 2003, this folder will be present by default in outlook and does not require any manual mapping.
The need of adding this folder arises when we often happen to forget reading important mails in inbox. This folder serves as a reminder to check and respond if required to unread emails.
Please see the below simple and easy steps to add it.
Step 1 - Open Outlook
Step 2 - Right click on Search Folder
Step 3 - Click on New folder.
Step 4 - Select Unread Mails
Step 5 - Click OK
Step 6 - It will create Unread Folder in Search Folder
Step - Now Drag and Drop Unread folder to 'favorite folders' or Right Click on Unread Mails option and Select Show in Favorites.
Step 1 – Open Outlook
Step 2 - Right click on Search Folder
Step 3 – You would find Unread Folder I the list of the folders
Step 4 - Click OK
You would find a new folder called "Unread Folder" in your outlook and it will automatically get updated with all the unread emails.
