    MS.. any updates on this??

    Despite MS' claim that the advanced find feature has been returned to us the "In Folder" column in the search results window can't be made visible by default. Previous versions of Outlook allowed users to select "In Folder" from the Frequently-used fields menu of the Field Chooser. Now to find it you have to go to All Mail fields to find it. As silly a change as this is, it can be done with a few more time-consuming mouse clicks. The problem remains that even after adding the "In Folder" field, it doesn't stick around for subsequent searches. This seems like such a basic and useful feature that somehow has become lost in the evolution of the program. MS please address this. Eliminating this feature was certainly not an improvement in the overall user experience.

    The "In Folder" field can be selected in Field Chooser or View Settings but after one or two searches the field disappears. Even after adding the field when you click "More," the search results defaults back to all the other fields showing except the "In Folder" I had just added. This appears to be a bug in Outlook. I've seen a few comments on this but I think it needs a Vote.

    When displaying search results Field Chooser in previous versions would allow adding the "In Folder" column. This can still be added but it typically disappears the next time I search. Has anyone come across a fix for this?
