Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a search folder, part of Outlook 2007: Effective Email Management.
Search folders give you a way to crawl through all of the folders in Microsoft…Outlook 2007 and return messages that meet a particular condition.…Two folders that exist by default: Categorized Mail, and Unread Mail, give you a…good idea of what's possible with Search folders.…We are going to create a new Search folder in Outlook 2007 to find all the items…that we've said we want to do work on later, every flagged item.…In order to do this, we are going to choose File > New > Search Folder.…
The New Search folder dialog box opens, and we have a whole list of choices.…So, for example, Unread Mail.…That already exists;…that's the Unread Mail folder here that's a default Search folder.…But the second one is Mail flagged for follow up.…That would be mail where I've assigned a flag.…So I am going to say OK.…That's a Search folder I want.…Here in one place, we see all of the flagged items, regardless of what…folder they are in.…So this is a way to think about my To-do list without the tasks in it.…
This is only my e-mail folders, flagged items here as opposed to flagged items…
