finding a folder containing an email item

One thing that I have always been frustrated by in Outlook 2007 is the inability to open the folder that contains an email item I am reading. If I am looking at an email listed in, say, Unread mail or in the results of a search, I can list the folder in which it resides. However, I can open that folder or even see where it is in my fairly large folder heirarchy under Messages. I've looked everywhere for such a feature. Perhaps there's some kind of add-in that provides it.

I can think of several ways such a feature could be exposed:

1) Right clicking on a mail item might show a Open Containing Folder command on the context menu.

2) The Message Options dialog could show the folder path.

Any help is appreciated.
