Sometimes you would like to know where you have an email located in Microsoft Outlook. If you have a lot of folders, this can be a common problem. Fortunately, you can find the folder location for any email using these steps.
- Open Outlook and search for the message using the quick search box located toward the upper-right portion of the window. When searching, be sure that “All Outlook Items” is selected in the drop-down box.
- Once you press “Enter” to submit your search, there should be an “In Folder” field that will tell you which folder the email is located in.
If you do not have this field perform these steps:
- Select the “View” tab.
- Select “Add Columns“.
- From the “Select available columns from:” drop-down menu, select “All Mail fields“.
- Select “In Folder” then select “Add” to add it.
