Save current search as a Search Folder in Outlook 2016
When running a search in the e-mail folder, you should be able to save the search query and folder setting as a Search Folder so that you can access quickly from list of search folders.
Great idea. This would basically also allow to define a search folder across multiple inboxes because the search facility allows "All Mailboxes" to be selected as search scope which is not something you can do when creating a search folder manually

This is a great idea. I think it would make search folders more visible and accessible to users. More users are familiar with search rather than search folders. Connecting the two would be a great enhancement.
When using the search function and you're reading the email you were looking for, stay in that email after hitting the "X" button to close the search. Also jump to that email in the list so sorted emails will appear adjacent to the current email.
