Using Categories & Search Folders with multiple accounts

Hi guys,

So here is my problem:

I need to mimic the Gmail labels features in Outlook 2003 with multiple accounts set in it:

So what I do is this:

1) I assign the message a new category
2) I create a custom search folder and go to criteria/more choices tab and I choose I category that I want to see in that folder
3) nothing happens, messages are not added to the search folder

My best guess is that this has something to do the fact that I have multiple accounts there.

I see no option where to set up what account to be included in the custom search folder.

Can anybody help please?

Thanks in advance

Thanks, but I actually solved this and it worked. I now have search folders mimicking labels so that I can organize my stuff. The send/receive is regulated by rules so I have separate folders for each of the accounts.

How did you make it work? I'd love to be able to use Search folders with multiple pst files.

I wish I could say that I got creative, but I just deleted the search folder, logged out and tried what I described in the first post again...don't have the time right now but I can post some screenshots later...the search folder appeared in the section where I have the specific account's Inbox and Sent.
