Outlook e-mail search options – current folder as default rather than current mailbox

Above your email messages, there is a Search box.


By default, if you are in the Inbox, it will say Search Current Mailbox, if you have another folder selected, it will search that folder. To change settings so that it will just search the current folder no matter what e-mail folder you are in, click File – Options – Search.


In the Results section, select Current folder instead of Current folder, Current mailbox when searching from the inbox.

Click OK.
