If the icon is highlighted, then PstViewer Pro will display all e-Mails in the folder as well as any sub-folders.   This is useful if you are trying to search or filter e-Mails that have been organized into multiple folders, such as by month or year.  Using this function you can load all of the e-Mails and work them as a batch.

Download a free trial of PstViewer Pro and use it for 15 days. It opens multiple e-Mail file types including .msg, .eml, .ost and .pst files.
