Office 365 - Find the folder location of a message when using the search function

This document will provide you step-by-step instructions on how to find the folder location of an email message when using the search function in Microsoft's Outlook email clients.


When using the search function in Outlook to locate a message, Outlook can also tell you in which folder the message is located. This is especially helpful for users with many folders or complex/nested folder structures.

Important: The folder location will not include the full path of the folders (if the folder is within other subfolders). It will only show the destination folder the message is located in.

After Outlook has returned your search results, you may follow the steps below for your email client to find the folder a message is in.
