How to search for a folder in Outlook

I support users who can have hundreds of folders in Outlook. Outlook doesn’t let you search for a folder but this simple script will enable that ability.

In Outlook, press Alt + F11 to open Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications.

Go to Project1 > Microsoft Outlook Object > ThisOutlookSession to open the Project1 – ThisOutlookSession window.

Copy this code into the Project1 – ThisOutlookSession window

Change the value of Private Const StopAtFirstMatch As Boolean = True to False so the script continues searching after the first result. Save and close.

To run the script, press Alt + F8. If the searched for folder is found it will be highlighted in the folder pane.
