Outlook 2010 - Find Folder Email is In

Hello Experts,

I'm having a frustrating time trying to find a folder that an email I searched for is in. From the properties of the email, it says it's in "Projects" folder. I have two "Projects" folders and the email I searched for is not found in either. Is there a way in Outlook 2010 to find the exact path of the folder? I'm pulling my hair out frustrated with this.

When you search, choose the option to "See more results"  From that list, when you highlight an email, the path is shown at the bottom. See below. It is a bit cumbersome, but I have the same issue and this is how I solved it.

Thinkpads_User,

What view are you on? I don't see what your screenshot shows...I did a "See more results" and just see the sender and recipients.

The screen above is a snapshot of the bottom of the See more results window. You may have to expand it a bit, but it is there. Just look at the bottom area and expand it.

In the results window, it doesn't show anything. And in the reading pane on the right, just shows the users involved in the email.

When I hover my mouse over an email this is what it shows. It helps to see what folder this email is in but not the path.

When I search in Windows 7, in "See More Results" I get a details window that does not look anything like the above, and in it I can see the folder. I do not know why you get such a different result.

When I seach in Outlook (Advanced Find, all folders), the resulting Search (in Outlook 2010) has an "In Folder" column.

So my system is more detailed than yours and I do not know why.

Thanks Thinkpads_User!

I was using the Outlook 2010 search engine. I did find the "In Folder" column but not it only showed the current folder which I think is dumb. So I used Windows 7 search and found it right away. It appears that I had another folder with the same name buried within another folder that I wouldn't have looked in.

Cheers mate!

Thank you. I am glad you got it sorted out and I was pleased to assist. In the interim, I was working in Outlook 2010 and got some pictures to help and so I will add them here.

First, In Outlook, click on the search bar in a folder. That brings up the Search tab in the top menu row. Click on Search Tools, Advanced Find. That brings up the next window.

In this window, click on Browse, then select Outlook and at the bottom, All subfolders.

Now enter your search term and Find. In the next screen, the Search Results actually have an In Folder column. See below.

I am sorry about the brevity of the pictures, but the information is personal and I hope you get the gist.

So this is just added information and thanks again.  .... Thinkpads_User
