How to Organize Email Messages in Yahoo Mail?

Written by Veronica Wilson

It’s really nice to know that the sheer numbers of message are getting accumulated into your Yahoo mailbox folder without any hurdle. But it’s really not a good idea to keep storing the messages in the Inbox folder. As there is a facility to create a folder by the name of the sender, users can do the same and keep moving the messages to a specific folder manually or by creating the filters.

This process actually reduces the burden on inbox and it can be quite feasible for the users to find messages sent by a specific person without wasting a time finding messages in the cluttered inbox.

Yahoo mail offers a facility to users for creating 200 custom folders when the email messages from the inbox, can be moved manually or automatically just by creating folders.

Just follow the steps to organize messages in Yahoo mail and manage your important emails in a proper way.

Desktop Version

  • As you navigate your mouse to the left side of the mail page, find the option labeled as folders
  • Hover your mouse over it and click on the icon “ Create New Folder”
  • You can also do the same by right-clicking the folder and choose ‘Create Folder’ option
  • Now the text box is displayed with which you can name the folder
  • Hit enter upon providing a name for the custom folder.
