Using Microsoft OWA for my IU Exchange account, how do I move or copy messages?
Follow the appropriate steps below to move or copy a message using Microsoft Outlook Web App (OWA).
Note: OWA has the same functionality across major
browsers in most cases. For help using OWA, with your Inbox displayed,
? (the question mark) at the top right.
Outlook Web App with the Premium Interface
- Open the message you want to move or copy.
- Click the
Move/Copyicon (a yellow folder obscuring a white document behind it, with a blue arrow pointing from the document to the folder), and then choose
Move to Folder...or
Copy to Folder.... This will open another window that displays a list of folders in your Inbox.
- In the
Move/Copy Itemwindow, select the folder into which you wish to move or copy the message. For a subfolder, click the
+(plus sign) next to the higher folder shown, and the subfolders will appear.

Copy. You can then close the message window.
Outlook Web App with the Light Interface
Note: When using the light interface, you can move, but not copy, messages to a different folder.
- Check the box next to the message or messages you want to move,
and then click

is not listed, choose a folder from the drop-down menu next to the
final radio button. Click
