How can know the folder where an Outlook 2007 email has been moved or saved to

jana used Ask the Experts™
Is there a way to know the actual folder an email is saved in?

We are searching for emails and found them, but since there are lots of folder, t\only the folder name appears in the search result.  We want to know the actual path (some folder has sub-folders).

You should be able to just put the mouse pointer over the message (may have to move away and then back again)... a box should pop up anf the folder is the last item listed...not really the whole folder path though....
This isn't native to Outlook - but you can use OWA to gather that information:
Also a rather clugy way, but it works - albeit slowly:


Thanx!  Solved it on link; both VBA and tip worked Perfectly!!
