Advanced User: I am trying to use the new fancy color categories. Then I
want to use the "Search Folders" with the new Categorized Mail folder.
Problem is, it does not search Deleted Items! I right clicked on the folder
and "Customized it" but it does not work. I move a "yellow flagged" item to
my inbox and it get found. Delete it and it does not. I keep over a years
worth of important e-mails in deleted items!

Any thoughts?

" I keep over a years worth of important e-mails in deleted items!"
I keep my favorite sandwich in the trash can as well! :-)

Anyway, you can select which folders the Search Folder applies to. Make sure
the Deleted Items folder is selected.

I only added advanced user to avoid basic answers.

Why store them there? Fundamentally Deleted items is no different than any
other folder. With the "empty deleted items on exit" unchecked, through
years of using Outlook there has been no difference between deleted items and
other folder. A key stroke is always faster than a drag. Thanks for the
quick answer!
