Instead of using folders to organize email, I use a combination of assinging categories to a message and using the easy to use advanced search features.

  • search by Subject
  • search by From 
  • search by Has Attachment
  • search by many more options

Give the advance search functions a try, as illustrated in  the screenshots below. The same logic to searching when you use most mail applications including Gmail, Mail (Mac) both on a grown up computer and a smart phone.

* Currently, Outlook 2016 is installed on Windows 7.
