Search Folders (Search Folders: Virtual folders that contain views of all e-mail items matching specific search criteria. The items remain stored in one or more Outlook folders.) in Outlook 2003 provide a quick and easy way to view items in your Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox that match specific criteria, such as messages you receive from a particular person or messages that contain specific words or phrases. It doesn't matter where the items are located in your mailbox because Search Folders allow you to view them all in one place.
