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 with them as a batch.
