Ymail as emailing service offers different tools for users to manage their inbox and messages properly, with proper instruments and folders that allow them organize all the information that are created by default. For example, the Unread, Starred, Draft and Sent folders are available from the very beginning as main functions in Yahoo Mail.

Purpose of the folders in Yahoo Mail

The default Unread, Starred, Draft and Sent folders in Yahoo Mail are containers where messages can be put or moved into, automatically or by the users to have a better and more organized experience in every way. At the moment of signing in and get to the inbox and Yahoo Mail home page. This is how and where they appear:

Depending on the actions carried out on the platform, the messages automatically can be moved to one folder or the other. Logically, sent emails will be moved to the Sent folder after they are sent, while drafts are unsent messages that remain in the Draft folder until they are completed.

Unread folder

The Unread folder is the one where unread messages are saved after they are moved from the inbox, in order to keep it organize and frequently by the user.

Sent folder

The Sent folder is the one that keeps every sent message by the user saved and reachable, going there automatically after is sent. So, for a message to appear on this container mandatorily must be sent previously, since emails cannot be moved manually to this location.

If we send a message, we can see how is moved to the Sent folder in the next images, in case there is the need to resend it or for the purpose of having a record of messages that have been shared.
