For organising and tidying up I user folders, as I’m sure lots of people do. When I search for common items in my inbox and it also finds some of the items I have already move to a specific folder, I can’t see which folder each mail item is in.
Am I just missing where it’s displayed, I can’t see it for the life of me!
Is this the wrong place for questions like this?
The easiest option is just to right-click in the message body and choose Properties. That will show the folder.
The more complex option, is to change the way the message list is displayed. First you will need to disable conversations, as a conversation consists of messages in multiple folder so it can’t be displayed. To disable conversations, use Menu > View > Conversations > Disable Conversations. Then you need to change the display from the default compact layout, to a single line layout. You do that by dragging the right border of the message list towards the right, so it exceeds 600 pixels. Once it does, it will change to a single line layout. You can then add the folder column by right-click on the column row header and choosing Columns Configuration. Move the folder option to the right column.

When you move emails to folders or labels you will see at the top right of the message body, tag labels with the (label name / folder name) where the message moved to. See example below.
