Using Search Folders

A new feature provided by Outlook 2003 is the Search Folder. A Search Folder is actually a virtual folder that lists e-mail messages that match a particular search criterion. While the messages are listed in the Search Folder, they are not actually stored in the Search Folder; the messages actually reside in your Inbox, Sent Items folder, and other mail folders that you create. When you delete a Search Folder containing messages, the messages that were listed in that Search Folder are not deleted from the actual folder (such as the Inbox or Sent Items folder) that they reside in. However, if you open an e-mail in a Search Folder and delete that message, the message will be deleted from the actual folder that it is stored in.

Messages Deleted from a Search Folder Are Deleted from Outlook Messages that are selected in or opened from a Search Folder and then deleted will delete the message from the folder that you have stored them in (such as the Inbox).
