I often do mail searches in Outlook and then wish that there were a way to save the search criteria to re-run later. Ideally, there would be a button on the Search tab that would allow me to create a Search Folder from my search criteria. I don't see a way to do this from within Outlook 2010 (although the "Recent Searches" drop-down is helpful for a limited number of recent searches). Are there any plugins for Outlook that would enable this functionality for Outlook 2010, or is there a chance that this functionality is included in Outlook 2013?


It appears that this functionality was available in Outlook 2003 and 2007 from the Advanced Find dialog but was removed in Outlook 2010 and 2013. Unfortunately, it seems that you have to create search folders "manually" in 2010 and 2013. Unless someone knows of an add-on or App for Office 2013 that will do this?
