In Microsoft Outlook you can create a Search Folder that will display items regardless of folders that meet certain criteria. These criteria can be whether the items are read, above a certain size, whether they have been flagged for follow up etc.

This example will show how to create a search folder that will display items that have recently been archived by Enterprise Vault and turned in to a shortcut. This is useful for users with large mailboxes who are unsure what email has archived in the last nights run.

From the Enterprise Vault support teams perspective this is useful to show that archiving is working correctly.
