Sort Unread (Search Folder) by "Folder" not available in new outlook

Pamela Novak 30 Reputation points

New outlook - now has the ability for the "search folder" for unread only, super.
However, you cannot sort by folder. For example, I have rules as most do, and emails are sorted to sub folders based on sender, or subject. In old outlook, you can sort by folder.

In new outlook, that is not an option. User's image

Would be helpful to have "folder" as an option as it was in old outlook, as different senders can be in the same folder based on rules.

    Hi @Pamela Novak

    Welcome to our forum!

    Currently, New Outlook search folders do not have the function of sorting.

    Please kindly understand that many functions are not designed at present. To get this feature more quickly, I have found a post in feedback collection website, and you could vote for it. Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. You can also make suggestions on that website and hope Microsoft will notice this in the future. Thank you for your understanding and support.
