#1 A Better Way to Find Your Mail

December 06, 2010
Outlook Search Folders
 
Tired of performing the same search every day? Wish you could quickly view every email sent to and from an important contact? Search folders collect just the items you want to see and makes them accessible with a click of the mouse.
 
Search folders search across all your email folders based on any criteria you choose and display them in one location. For example, if you frequently communicate with your manager, John, create a John search folder to keep track of all your correspondence. Need a quick view of all emails with over sized attachments? Interested in just old email? Use a search folder.
 
To create a search folder:
  1. Right click on the Search Folders branch of your mailbox and then choose New Search Folder.
  2. Select a pre-made Search Folder from the list.
  3. Click the Choose button, type a name, and click OK. If you are creating a custom search folder, choose Criteria  instead.
