Hi johnhardy,

You could create a rule to search folders and sub-folders and then move the e-mails.

Create a new rule from a Blank rule.
Select the conditions in which you want to search, words, subject, sender ect...
Select the Folder to where you want to move the e-mails.

When finished, click the run now button and select the folder or folders you want this rule to run on. Check the search subfolders if you need. For instance to search your entire In-Box and subfolders, choose Run in "In-Box" and check "include subfolders.

You can also, create a search folder. This will show the e-mails you are looking for but, then you would have to manually move them. Just a thought.

Since you probably do not want this rule to run all the time, uncheck the rule after you are done. It will still be there for the next time you need it.

cheers,
frankco

Thanks Franco,

Thats one way to do it which I had never thought of. How ever what I would prefer to find is "fast searcher" like LookOut but one where the emails can be highlighted and dragged to a  folder destination or use move to folder.

I would be concerned that the above rule idea would not be turned off and would activate

Hi johnhardy,


A search folder will place all the emails into one folder. Would that option work?
