    Hi,

    I am receiving emails directly in the inbox but I want to receive my emails in a specific folder.

    Simplest is to open a message and right click the part of the header you want to set the rule to.
    If you want all mail coming in to go to a different folder, you would right click the To: line of the header.
    If you want only messages from certain people to be moved, open a message from them and right click the From: line.
    Select "Create filter from..." and the Filter dialog will open with the top already filled in.
    In the bottom, set the folder you want things to go to and OK.
