Client using Office 365 with Outlook 2013. Director's mailbox is approx 30 GB with Online Archive at approx 20GB.

A request has come in where  a search of that mailbox needs to be completed. There are 130 separate search terms that need to be undertaken.

Is there a way that I can create the Search Folders along with the Crtieria for each folder using script & CSV rather than creating each Search Folder one by one?

Thanks
Mark

You can create them via the object model as detailed for example here: http://www.slipstick.com/developer/create-an-outlook-search-folder-using-vba/

If you are performing the search as part of eDiscovery/legal investigation, you can do it server-side via Search-Mailbox/New-MailboxSearch.
