Thanks for your reply.

Your reference has info for different versions of Outlook, but not 2016 which I have.

Do your search, then click the View Tab. Then in the toolbar click "Add Columns".
then in the left column choose "In Folder" and click the arrow to add it to the right column.
You can choose the order the columns appear in this dialog too.
And remove unwanted columns.

Tried your fix. Could not find a column called 'in folder'.

Thanks for your reply though!

Are you looking at the Search results before you click the View tab? You want to be modifying the view for Search results.

(in my screenshot In Folder is in the right column, on yours it should be in the left column)

The Advanced search method works if you need to find where the folder the found message is within the folder tree.
