I use Xobni and Outlook 2007’s Instant Search quite often. Once I find and open the e-mail that I’ve retrieved using either mechanism, I almost always want to find and display the folder where that message is stored. So here’s a quick and handy little macro that will do just that:
On Error Resume Next
Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objExpl As Outlook.Explorer
‘Don’t do anything if nothing is open!
If ActiveInspector Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Set objFolder = ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.Parent
Set objExpl = objFolder.GetExplorer
objExpl.WindowState = olMaximized
Set objExpl = Nothing
Set objFolder = Nothing
Unfortunately there’s no way to select the current message in the folder as well – we’ll have to wait until the next version of Outlook to see if the Product Team has added such functionality to the object model. 😉
