I've had all my Outlook email/contacts moved to Mac side...iMail. Very happy so far but not sure how to do:

Creating additional folders
Creating sub-folders

When they moved all data over to iMail, multiple folders were automatically created & I had to go rename all. Fine.

I cannot make additional folders?

I made a smart Mailbox but cannot move inbox items to it??

Why can't I simply make additional folders to drop emails into?

As usual, I'm sure it's easy, but I'm hunting down a solution.

Thx in advance!!

Have you tried selecting "Mailbox" from the main menu and then select "New Mailbox"? Just name the new Mailbox and where you would like to place it.

New Mailbox = new folder.

Regards.

FYI... a "smart" anything (folder, mailbox, etc.) on the MAC is just that, uhm.... smart. It operates via the "rules" you define.

For example if you created a SMART folder that collected JPGs, then (miraculously?) without moving *anything*, that folder would look like it contains all your jpgs.

Wow, I thought I tried that...silly me.

Worked like a charm or what I wanted.
