You can move items from one folder in Outlook to another; for example, you can create a folder to store all messages pertaining to a specific account or just make a folder that holds personal messages instead of business- related messages.

You can also copy items from one folder to another (rather than moving them). Select the items you want to copy. Then select Edit, Copy to Folder . Specify the location that you want to copy the items to in the Copy Items dialog box (which is similar to the Move Items dialog box shown in Figure 6.6) and then click OK .
