    Yves, if you are referring to the Windows 10 Mail program, then no.

    Any folders created are stored in one's Microsoft on-line mail account (, Hotmail, Live, etc.) or other mail provider's servers; this application only displays what is stored there.

    Now that Microsoft has doomed their own freeware Windows Live Mail to future extinction, it won't synchronize with their own mail service after mid-July -- but will still work with IMAP or POP accounts. Calendar and Contacts/People won't synch, either. BUT, WLM DID store on local folders.

    There are commercial & freeware products that will emulate WLM fully -- including local folder storage. You can try eM Client, or Mozilla's Thunderbird.
