iCloud: Organize email with folders in Mail on iCloud.com

Organize email with folders in Mail on iCloud.com

iCloud automatically sets up seven default Mail folders: Inbox, VIP, Drafts, Sent, Archive, Trash, and Junk. You can create additional folders and subfolders to organize your email. A folder with subfolders inside it has a triangle next to it; click the triangle to show or hide subfolders.

To work with folders, make sure the sidebar is visible. See Show or hide the sidebar in Mail on iCloud.com.

Create a folder or subfolder

  • Create a new folder: In Mail on iCloud.com, make sure no folder is selected, then click the Add button  next to Folders in the sidebar. Type a name, then press Return.

  • Create a subfolder: In Mail on iCloud.com, do one of the following:

    • Select the folder in which you want to add a subfolder, click the Add button , type the new subfolder’s name, then press Return.

    • Drag an existing folder on top of another folder. The dragged folder becomes a subfolder.

Rename or delete a folder

  1. In Mail on iCloud.com, double-click the name of the folder you want to rename or delete.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Rename a folder: Type the folder’s new name, then press Return.

    • Delete a folder: Click the Remove button  to the left of the folder’s name.

You can also delete a folder by using the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar. Select the folder, click the Action pop-up menu , then choose Delete Folder.
