    @DexterGs comment: to add the "In Folder" unfortunatelly is not enough :-( because it is only shown the last Folder. I have a lot of subfolders, so I never find my emails. I need the whole path to find the email.3e@DexterGs comment: to add the \"In Folder\" unfortunatelly is not enough ;-( because it is only shown the last Folder.

    When I find an email that I've saved, via search, how do I find out which folder that email is in?

    If you add the "In Folder" column to to your view, it will show the containing folder for each of the emails in your search results. You can also sort by this column.

    I had selected my Other mailbox. Some time later I did a search, but nothing shows up. I couldn't tell it was only searching the Other mailbox, because that part of the UI disappears when searching.

    I would be nice to know what I'm searching when the results are empty.
