Subscribe: Folders, B-boards & RSS

Folders & B-boards

By default, Outlook only displays folders or bulletin boards (b-boards) to which you are subscribed. Follow these steps to subscribe to a folder or b-board:

  1. On the Folder tab, in the IMAP section of the Ribbon, select IMAP Folders. The IMAP Folders dialog box appears.
    Note: If the IMAP Folders do NOT appear, be sure that you have an email subfolder selected, not your account name.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To display all of your Inbox folders, in the Display folders whose names contain field, enter Inbox, then click Query. A list of your folders appears.
    • If you want to subscribe to a specific b-board and if you know the exact name, enter the name in the Display folders whose names contain text field.
    • If you want to subscribe to a specific b-board and if you aren't sure of the name of it, click Query and then scroll through and select the bulletin board from the list.
  3. Select the folder(s) or b-board to which you would like to subscribe, then click Subscribe.
  4. Click OK.
