    Emails sometimes disappear when I drag and drop them from my inbox into a sub-folder in Outlook 2013. I have tried taking out all filters but this still happens – but not every time, which makes it difficult to understand what is going on.

    • Hi David, firstly apologies for the tardy reply. When you drag and drop emails to sub-folders, it is fairly easy to drop them in the wrong folder by accident. This is why I like to use the Move Button to move emails from one folder to another. Dragging is good for single emails but if I have more than one to move I use the Move Button.
