Author: Siluvia Last Modified: 2022-07-20

In order to manage the Inbox folder effectively, some Outlook users tend to move the original emails to a certain folder after they have been replied. This tutorial provides a method to help you solve this problem.

Move original emails after they have been replied with an amazing tool

As it cannot be done with Outlook rules, here we recommend a handy tool for you – the Bulk Reply emails feature of Kutools for Outlook. After using this feature to reply to emails, the original emails will be automatically moved from the Inbox folder to a specified folder. Please do as follows.

1. Click Kutools > Bulk Reply > Create & Manage Reply Templates.

2. In the Create & Manage Reply Templates dialog box, you need to configure as follows.

2.1) Firstly you need to create a template to reply to the selected email(s).
1) Click the Create button;
2) Give the template a name in the Create dialog box and click OK;
3) Compose the reply template (or leave the body blank for future composing). See screenshot:

2.2) Then you need to specify a folder to save the original emails after they have been replied to.
1) Click the Settings button to open the Options dialog box;
2) Check the Move the selected emails to specified folder after replying box;
3) In the drop-down list, choose a folder to save the moved emails;
4) Click OK to close the Options dialog box;
5) Click OK in the Create & Manage Reply Templates dialog box to save the settings. See screenshot:

3. Select an email you will reply to, and then click Kutools > Bulk Reply > Reply to selected email (it is the name of the template you created in step 2).

Tips: If you want to reply to multiple emails with the same content. Please hold down the Ctrl key and select the emails one by one.

4. Then the Reply window pops up. You can see that the preset body of the reply is displayed in the window. If you did not compose anything in step 2, it will open a blank Reply window. Please modify the body and then click the Reply button.

After clicking on Reply, the original emails will be automatically moved from the Inbox folder to the specified folder.
