    Updating filters for changed folder location- OL2K

    Hi,

    By mistake, I created sub-folders under Inbox (instead of under Personal Folders) and set several filters for them. Will these filters get automatically updated if I move the sub-folders now? It would be a pain to re-create all those filters again.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ramdak

    This will work if you just drag the folders to the right place within the same 'box' - ie if they start and finish under Inbox, or start and finish under the same 'Personal Folder'. The filter will remember to new location and work perfectly.

    However, if you move the folder between boxes - as you suggested, from under Inbox to under a Personal Folder - the filter will lose the connection and switch itself off. The filter itself will still be there, so you don't have to set it up again, but you will need to go in and set the location of the folder again, and switch it back on.

    I'd suggest you move all the folders to the right place, then go in and correct all the filters at once.
