Hi,

I have many folders and folders within folders.Is there a way that a macro when run will search for all followup mails and move them to a specified folder no matter in which folder they are including inbox.

Any way this can be done.

I'm not sure I understand.  Are you saying that you want a macro that will search all your email folders looking for followup mails?  If so, then that could be extremly time consuming depending on how many folders you have.  It is doable though if that's what you want.

Yes you are right i need to find all and move all mails to a specific folder.
Its a one time task and would be repeated once in a while.

I think in outlook you have something callsed for follow up in the search folders where all your follow up mails are stored.

Just select all the emails and move them to the desired folder you want

hope this helps....

I think all the emails in the followup (flagged) will be in the followup folder

Chandru i just went through all the options in outlook 2007 but could not see a way to have a folder which shows all follow up mails in one place.

Try this....

If you don't have a flagged for follow up folder right click on the search folders click New Search folder, highlight mail flagged for follow up and click ok.

You should then have a new search folder which displays all mail flagged.
