I need to create a Search Folder that would be able to search messages in more than one account and / or multiple PST folders. I have attached two screenshot that show that I can user the Search Folder in the 1 account and the same query I need to prepare another Search Folder with another PST folder. Is there a way to bypass it and have one single Search Folder for all PST (I have more than 1) and the default account(s)? I am using MS Outlook 2013 (32-bit version).

Unfortunately, you can't make a multi-data file search folder. I son't know if any 3rd party search utilities might be able to mimic a search folder that covers all data files - i have a list of utilities here - Search Tools for Personal Use
