In office 2003 there was a feature to search and had options such as Inbox, All mail folders,  and CHOOSE FOLDERS. After upgrading to OFFICE 2007 the CHOOSE FOLDER is not there. Is there a specific view or other feature we need to install, or is this a feature not available in 2007. Thanks for your help. Thanks

Hi

You can use search folders but that is kind of too time consuming if you want to find something quickly

or you can configure outlook 2007 to search all folders by default by going to file>options>search and select all folders (see attached image from outlook 2010.

hope that helps
