Outlook categorized Mail Search Folders issue

In my Outlook 2007 client in the left pane under "Search Folders" there's "Categorized Mail". It says there are 40 objects there and I can see all e-mails in there listed by category.

However when I click on the named categories under the "Search Folders", it says "Outlook cannot display this view".

Hi, garryshape.

Sorry, I'm not clear on the issue.  I don't understand what you mean when you say

    named categories under the "Search Folders"

Are you saying that you've created an individual search folder for each category and they're not working?

For example can you see the items here:

If I click on the "Need to do" for example, it says "Outlook cannot display this view".
But if I click on "Categorized Mail [40]", I can see all categorized mail in there as well as the "Need to Do" items.

First, there's no correlation between those two search folders.  Each search folder is created individually.  The fact that the "Categorized Mail" folder works and the "Need to Do" folder doesn't work are unrelated.  Have you looked at the properties of the "Need to Do" folder to verify that the properties are correct?    Have you tried deleting and recreating the folder?

Ok let me try that.
I'm not sure how it got setup.
So you CAN create a folder to show only certain categorized emails?
