Description

A lot of us use message filters to automatically place our incoming mail under a certain folder structure. We usually also combine that with using saved search folders (based on date, tag and other criteria) to view our messages in an aggregated manner. It would be really useful to have a context menu command that would take us from any search folder to the actual folder containing the message we are viewing.

There are two ways to do this the way I see it (don't know whether it should be configurable or if we should stick to one of them). Either open the folder in a new tab or in the same tab. So...

a) If it opens in a new tab, once done reading/replying/deleting/whatever we'd have an easy & fast way to return from the specific folder we opened back to the saved search folder we originally viewed the message. Simply close the new tab and we'd be back to the saved search folder to continue going through the rest of the mail!

b) If it opens in the same tab, we then have the back/forward buttons to go back to the saved search folder once done with the specific massage/folder.

Hope you find this feature request useful and that this is not a duplicate (I did search before filing the bug). Thanx in advance for considering this.

Do you really need to open in the folder?  Or is Open in Conversation sufficient?
