How do I create a new folder?

With the help of folders, you can organise your inbox as well as sorting by people or themes. This help article explains how to create a new folder.

Creating a folder

To create a new folder first, log in to the Posteo webmail interface. Then, proceed as follows:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Click Folders
  3. Click the plus symbol at the bottom left
Click "Settings" then "Folders" and the "plus" (+) symbol (at the bottom left)
  1. Enter a name for the folder
  2. Click Save
Enter a name for the folder. Clicking "Save" creates the folder.

Additional options

Parent folder

Via the “Parent folder” menu option, you can specify where a folder is saved. For example, you can make folders into subfolders of the inbox. Subfolders within folders are also possible, just like on a computer system. With Posteo, you can add unlimited folders and subfolders. The depth of your folder structure (subfolders within subfolders, etc) is also unlimited.

You can make the folder into a subfolder using the "Parent" option

List view mode

With list view mode, you can specify for each folder whether the webmail interface displays emails in a list or in conversation view. You can read about the difference between “list” and “conversation” view in our help article How do I change between list and conversation view?

Conversation view displays emails that belong together in a tree-like structure
