How do I view email messages that have been moved to another folder?

This article is intended for users who still read email on legacy SEAS servers. It does not apply to Google@SEAS.

Messages can be delivered directly into folders (eg, spam into spamfolder), or they can be moved into a folder by the user. CETS will move older messages into a folder to keep your inbox a manageable size and to keep our email service running smoothly.

To read email messages that are stored in folders:

  1. Visit https://webmail.seas.upenn.edu
  2. Log in using your SEAS username and password.
  3. Click on "Settings" on the upper right-hand corner
  4. Then click on "Folders" on the left-hand column
  5. It should then list all of your folders. If it's checked, that means it's visible (and vice-versa). You can go down the list and click on the checkbox to make them visible.
  6. To log out, click on the "Logout" icon at the top of the page.

You can also read mail folders using any IMAP mail client, such as Thunderbird.
