I started using a new Gmail account with Outlook 2007. One of the things I wanted to do was create multiple nested sub-folders in Outlook. By default, Gmail just uses labels which will only give you one layer of folders in Outlook. I also wanted them to be sub-folders of the Inbox.
The trick is fairly simple, actually…in Gmail, just create labels using the forward Slash /
For example, let’s say you want a folder set-up like this in Outlook:
In GMail, simply set-up a new label that looks like this:
That’s all there is to it!
Important point: You need to use ALL CAPS for the INBOX portion of the label. Otherwise, it will not work correctly.
