Office 365 (Outlook for Android) - Working with mail folders

This document will provide you step-by-step instructions on how to view mail folders using Outlook for Android.

Default folders

Your account starts with these default folders:

  • Inbox Incoming messages arrive in your Inbox unless you've created an Inbox rule to redirect them to another folder, or they're identified as junk email.
  • Drafts If you create or respond to a message, but can't finish it right away, it will automatically be saved to your Drafts folder. You can come back to the message later to continue editing it, and then send it.
  • Sent Items By default, a copy of every message you send is put in your Sent Items folder.
  • Trash When you delete a message, it's moved to the Trash folder.
  • Junk Email Messages that have junk email characteristics but that aren't blocked by a spam filter before they reach your mailbox will automatically be moved to this folder. Learn about junk email and phishing has more information about your Junk Email folder.

Using folders

To access your folders tap the three lines three lines icon in the upper left corner of the screen. Tap the arrow next to your account name to display the default folders. To see all of your folders, tap See All Folders. Then tap the name of the folder you would like to open.
