Search Folders: The easy way to find, read, and organize your e-mail

Search Folder with messages. Messages appear in the folder, but aren't actually moved there.

Messages are displayed in the Search Folder, but they aren't actually moved there.

Think of a Search Folder as a virtual folder: It shows you messages as if they were in the folder, but the messages don't actually exist there. A Search Folder serves only as a report of search results. That is, because Search Folders are virtual, they allow you to conveniently see collections of messages, without messing up your filing system (or forcing you to create one).
