  • Point your cursor on the email you want to move.
  • Hold down your left mouse key and drag the email to the folder you want to move it to.
  • Let go of the left mouse key and it drops into the folder.
  • Don’t worry, if you moved the email to the wrong folder, just click on the folder and follow the steps to move it to the correct folder.
  • Delete an Email – Select the email you want to delete, click on the Delete Icon.
