    I can't find some folders in Windows Mail

    I hope someone can help. I created some new folders this morning in Windows
    Mail and now they're not there. I saw a question earlier (can't find it now)
    that was quite similiar and followed the path exactly that was offered in a
    response. It didn't work...When I created the folders I wanted to start at
    the bottom, so I designated them to go under Junk Mail...but they're not
    there, nor in Junk Mail, nor anywhere else. I'm at my wit's end with this.
    They're not critical, but they are very important to me. If anyone can help
    I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Just click on Local Folders in the folder tree and then all folders
    available will be displayed.

    C:\Users\*your username*\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail

    Will show all folders in your message store.

    Can you see them now?

    of you clicked on JUNK MAIL and then new folder, that is probably the problem,.
    click on Local Folders and then NEW.

    Search for *.eml and see if you can find them that way.
