Select Which Folders to Sync When Using Microsoft Outlook on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to select which folders to sync when using a Microsoft Outlook account on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see several icons. We now need to find the Settings menu, and to do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down.
To open the Notification panel, start at the top of the screen, and swipe downwards.
Now, we can see that the Notification panel has appeared.
We are looking for the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen. It is a white cog icon. This is our Settings icon.
Press down on this icon, and it will open up the "Settings" menu. It says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Now, let's scroll down to the "PERSONAL" section, as indicated by the word "PERSONAL" in the gray bar.
We are looking or the second option, "Accounts & sync". Next to these words, there is an icon of a gray circle surrounding by two arrows making another circle.
Press down on this option, and it will open up our "Accounts & sync" menu. This page shows us all the accounts that we have synced with our HTC One M8.
We want the option for "Outlook.com". Next to this is the "Outlook" icon.
Press down on that option to open the "Outlook.com" menu.
We want the option at the bottom that says "General settings - Size limit, format and server". Press down on that.
Now, let's scroll down until we get to "MAIL SETTINGS".
In that section, we want "Folder to sync". In this video, we want to demonstrate how to select which folders to sync when using this Microsoft Outlook account on an HTC One M8.
Currently in this example, it says "Inbox".
If we press down on this option, we can see that there is only one box checked, and that is next to "Inbox". This means that only "Inbox" is currently synced, and we will only receive mail from the "Inbox" of our Microsoft Outlook account. We won't receive any "Junk" mail, and we won't receive the "Sent" messages. This could be difficult because sometimes, as we have all experienced, we receive important emails in the "Junk" folder. Also, it can be very useful to be able to read our "Sent" emails, so we can be sure that emails have been set, or if we need to check them for any information.
If we want to add, change, or select which folders to sync, we can just press down on the boxes on the right. If we press down on the box, it will put a check in the box.
Now, we can see that there are checks in three different boxes.
If we want to deselect an of these options, just press down on the box until the check disappears.
Now, we have added the "Sent" folder to be synced.
Press down on the "OK" button at the bottom right.
Now, underneath "Folder to sync", there are two options, "Inbox" and "Sent".
This concludes our tutorial on how to select which folders to sync when using a Microsoft Outlook account on an HTC One M8.
