I am using Micrososft Outlook 2003 under Windows XP. I would like to search a message that contains a specific word in it. I do have lots of folders in addition to teh standard folders (Inbox,sent,etc..). The messages I am looking for is in one of the many non standrad folders. That is, in one of the folders I created.
So far I tried the following:
1) Select "Find" from the Tool Menu, and then "Advanced Find".
2) In the "Advanced Find" window I typed in the search box the word I am looking for. That is, a word that I know is contained in the message I am looking for.
3) In the same "Advanced Find" window I press the Browse button, and a list of all the folders that I have in Oulook show up. In principle by placing a checkmark next to the folders I would like to search in would be the solution. However, Outlook only allows to place a checkmark in the standard folders (Inbox, Drafts, etc..). That is in any of the folders listed under "Mailbox". It will not let me place a checkmark under other folders that are not within the Mailbox gruop. I get a meesage that says: "You can only select folders from the same information service".
I am not sure what this means. but because of this I cannot perform a global search in all the folders I would like to check.
Does anyone know how to overcome this or knows of a different method to perform a search in all folders created in Outlook?
