OE Folders Column

Do you use Outlook Express for all of your e-mail needs? I know a lot of you do (myself included), so I thought this little tip would add the perfect touch to today’s newsletter! So, tell me, when you’re using Outlook Express, do you usually have the Folders column on display? You know, the list of all the folders you use for your e-mails, such as the Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Drafts, etc. Those are there to help you keep your e-mail organized and I don’t know about you, but I think they are a huge help!

Now, what would you do if you lost that column? What if it just happened to disappear? Would you go crazy? I know I would, because I depend on those folders to keep all of my e-mail straight and in line. Well, before you go too ballistic, there’s a very easy way to get the Folders column back. Here’s how!

In Outlook Express, in the far left corner, the word “Inbox” is written in big letters and it has a little arrow next to it. If you click that arrow, all of your folders will show up for you. Now, also in that window, there’s a little push pin icon. If you click on that, the Folders column will come back and stay permanently. It looks like this:

If you don’t click that push pin, the column will go away as soon as you click on something else. So, if you lost your e-mail folders and you want them back, use this method to keep them forever. Yes!
