Getting a Search folder to look in Deleted Items

The way I organize my email is to delete messages and then move them to a .pst later.  I would like my search folders to be able to look in the Deleted items folder but it seems to skip it even though I select it in the customize dialog.  

Thanks,
Paul

Hi hd181a,

I know this is off topic, but why not just file them instead of the extra step?  

Cheers!

The reason I do this is it is easier to delete the emails than to move them each to a folder.  Then once a week I move the deleted emails to a .pst.

How about a macro based solution giving you a button that'll move items directly to the PST file with a single click?

I guess what I'm looking for is someone to tell me how to include the Deleted items folder in the search path.  Anyone know if/how this can be done?

Thanks,
Paul

If you create a search folder that searches an entire PST/mailbox, then it should pick up everything that matches the search folder's criteria, including those in Deleted Items.  What criteria are you using?

I am creating the search folder on my server email not the .pst.  I include the Deleted Items folder but it just seems to skip it.  Does anybody know if this is by design?

It is definitely not by design.  As I noted above when I create a search folder and set it to work against my mailbox it finds everything that meets whatever criteria I've set, even if it's in Deleted Items.  I don't have to select Deleted Items, I just leave the mailbox checked and it works against everything under the mailbox.
