How to Find a Folder in Microsoft Outlook
How To Find a Folder in Microsoft Outlook using Exchange’s Outlook Web Access
Recently one of us misplaced a folder in Microsoft Outlook. Messages in that folder could still be found when using Outlook’s search, however we had no idea where the folder had been moved to. Neither Outlook 2003, 2007 nor 2010 have support for searching for folders by name, or for even finding the full path to a folder based on a single email message.
Luckily a way was found to track down the folder.
We were able to log in to Outlook Web Access (OWA) and do a search to find a message that was in the missing folder. The message was opened and in the browser’s address bar was displayed the path to the folder. The address looked like:
By following everything from the Inbox down, we determined the message was located in:
Inbox -> My Folder Name -> Another Folder -> Important Folder
Hopefully that helps someone else track down an accidentally moved folder!
