Using Search Folders
A Search Folder displays all the messages in your mailbox that match a specific set of
search criteria, no matter which folders the messages are actually stored in. When you
create a Search Folder, it becomes part of your mailbox and is kept up to date. The
Search Folder module is located in the Folder Pane, within your top-level mailbox, at
the same level as the Inbox.
By default, Outlook 2013 includes one standard Search Folder: Unread Mail. (If your
environment includes Microsoft Lync you might also have Search Folders for Missed
Calls and Missed Conversations.) If you want quick access to messages that it a
specific set of criteria, you can create a custom Search Folder. To do so, follow these steps:
Display any mail folder.
On the Folder tab, in the New group, click New Search Folder to open the New
Search Folder dialog box.
KEYBOARD SHORTCUT Press Ctrl+Shift+P to open the New Search Folder dialog box.
Search Folder categories include Reading Mail, Mail From
People And Lists, Organizing Mail, and Custom.
