2. Go to the Ribbon and select the Home tab.

3. In the New section, select New Items.

5. When the Create or Open Outlook Data File window appears, browse to the location where the file is to be located.

 Depending on your chosen method of working or department this will be either:

a) Name of Project – (Referring to the Site Information Folder or Estimator Database Project Ref. Number etc.)

b) A-C , D-F etc – If you receive emails from many sources not applicable to a project
