    What folder contains message (2003)

    Is it possible to display the name of the folder containing a message in the header section of a message? In other words, if I double-click on a message to displayed the message in its own window, I want to view the name of the folder where it resides in the header section along with the subject, to, from, etc.

    Normally that would be redundant information, but I use Google Desktop to search for messages. GD offers the option to "view in Outlook", which is great as far as it goes. I would like to subsequently browse thru the folder where the message was found in order to find other messages that I've filed in the same folder. But without seeing the name of the folder, I am stymied.

    TIA

    File | Properties will tell you the message Folder, though it will not show the parent Information Store and Folder Tree; that would require code such as:

    Sub ShowMessagePath
    If Cbool(Inspectors.Count) Then Msgbox ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.Parent.FolderPath
    End Sub

    Why not use Windows Desktop Search: Best in Class Search Tool and search from within Outlook?

    I'm just curious: do View>Previous and View>Next work when you access the message this way?

    Nope - they are greyed-out.

    File|Properties is exactly what the doctor ordered! Thanks for the tip.

    Well... I guess the "why not" is because I did not know it existed. ;-)

    Anyway, I've downloaded the XP version and will try it out. Thanks for the tip.
