In my Outlook 2013, I am trying to manage my emails by creating sub-folders in my inbox.

What I want to do is to divide my emails in four sub folders named as follow :

(First Quarter, Second Quarter, Third Quarter, Fourth Quarter)

Currently, I want to apply this for the First and Second Quarter of the year.

Is it possible to do this by creating a specific rule?

I don't mind to create a rule for each quarter if needed.

  • So how many subfolders will you have? A never ending amount, such as Q1 2015 Q2 2015 Q3 2015 Q4 2015 Q1 2016 Q2 2016 Q3 2016 Q4 2016 etc or only 4 were all emails (regardless of year) go into that sub folder? – Dave Oct 24 '16 at 10:37
  • Actually I will move the four sub-folders later to a folder with year's name and archive it independently. – Scorpion99 Oct 24 '16 at 10:51

You can do this, but you'd need to update the rule every quater

When you create a new rule, there is the option in Step 1

received in a specific date span

That will allow you to chose the date range you want to work with. In step 2 you can then choose

move to the specified folder

As per your comments, I'd probably create the sub folder now, similar to

And then (using the example above) create the rules required! This way you won't have to think about it until 2020!!
