Finding Email Folder Location in Outlook

During a search in Outlook, a message can be located with no details specifying what folder it resides in. Add a column to the search function in order to see the folder location:

  1. Open the search and locate the message
  2. Select the “View” tab
  3. Select “Add Columns”
  4. From “Select available columns from:” drop down, choose “All Mail fields”
  5. Select “In Folder” and then “Add”
  6. Remember to modify the setting for “Maximum number of lines in compact mode” so that the “In Folder” option is visible under the message properties.
