Search folders are one of the great new features of Outlook 2007 that can really help you be more productive.  Essentially they are a view of your inbox based on certain criteria that you can pick yourself. 

For example, maybe you want a search folder that shows you all your emails from your boss?  Or a folder that shows you all the emails you have over 200kb?

Outlook 2007 comes setup with a few default search folders, like “Unread Mail”.  That being said, it is really easy to set up your own.

1) Click on the little arrow beside the “New” button in the top left hand corner of your Outlook 2007 window

2) In the drop-down menu that appears, click on “Search Folder” (or just use the shortcut – CTRL+SHFT+P)

3) In the box that appears, start to select the criteria you want to use

4) Depending on what you just chose, fill in the box below – for example, if you want to show all the emails from your boss… put their email address in there

5) Click “OK”


Now you can keep track of your email by looking at it in different ways… and make sure you know where your boss’s emails are just in case they come asking questions!

‘till next time!
