If you received many emails that are stored in your inbox, there are always messages that you delete after reading them and sometimes there are also messages that you want to keep so that you can read them again at a later date because the message was either funny, important or interesting.
If the mail messages you keep is getting too much, you might have difficulty finding out which email is from which and which email is from which. And sometimes if you want to find a particular message, you have to skim through all the emails from page to page in order to find it.
Fortunately, you can create folders in Yahoo mail so that you can organize all of your emails and group them according to their categories or specific groups. For example, folder A; to store emails from your friends, folder B; to store emails from your business partners and folder C; to store emails from your family or relatives.

The second method to do it is to click "Edit" in My Folder column on the main page of your mail, then you will be taken to the Folders page. On the left side there is an Add Folder box, fill in the box with the name of your new folder and then click Add. Your new folder will appear in the right hand column. To rename the folder or delete them you can click "Rename" or “Delete” which are in parentheses next to the folder.
