Adding Custom Home View Panels

In addition to the pre-defined panels you can add to your Home View, you can also create custom panels that point to any folder you've created. You may want to create a custom panel that shows the unread messages in a folder you've created to receive all the e-mails from your boss, or you may want to create a panel that points to a specific address book. You can choose to filter custom panels and to view them with several different options.

Follow the steps below to create and add a custom panel to your Home View:

  1. Click the arrow at the right of any current panel header.
  2. Select Add Panel from the menu that appears.
  3. Click New Panel.
  4. Type a name for the new panel.
  5. Select a folder you want the panel to point to by clicking the Change Folder button.
  6. Select a folder and click OK.
  7. Click the More Display Settings button to choose options on how the panel will display the items in the selected folder, and click OK.
  8. Click the Filter button to filter your items according to the criteria you specify, and click OK.
  9. Click OK to exit the Create Panel dialog.
  10. In the Add Panel dialog, select the panel you just created and click Add.
