When you try to create a new folder in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Outlook Web Access (OWA), there is no option to specify the location for the new folder.


A new folder can only be created within the currently selected folder.

To create a subfolder under a specific parent folder, change location to the parent folder first. Any new folder you create at this point will be a subfolder of the parent.

For example: If you want to create a subfolder under Inbox, you must first navigate to (and select) the Inbox before you create the folder.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.
