How Do I Know What Folder Contains an Email That I Have Search for In Mail?

Using Mac OS X El Capitan V10.11.6

When searching for email containing a word in the contents, title, subject line, etc, a list is generated but I cannot find any information regarding it’s location (saved folder).

Please help!

    It probably depends on your email service. But for me, when I look at a message, whether searching or not, I see the folder/label/mailbox name next to the “from” field at the top of the message. It is to the right of the “from” and the left of the “time” right above the subject.

    Also, note that I am using High Sierra. There’s no way for me to check to see if this is the same in old El Capitan.

    Eureka! El Capitan does display the “stored folder” of searched emails to the far right of the “To:” and just below the email’s date.

    Wow – that makes things a lot easier for me!

    Thanks
