Using the Search Folders
Search folders are an Outlook tool that lets you automate the process of finding certain email messages.
A search folder is a virtual folder that displays messages that meet certain criteria. You can display
messages from certain people, messages with specified words in the subject or body, messages with
attachments, messages with importance marked as high — the possibilities are seemingly endless.
What do I mean by virtual ? It means that the search folder does not actually contain the message
but only displays it — the message itself remains in its original folder such as the Inbox.
