If you search in multiple folders for an e-mail, Outlook can tell you the name of the folder the e-mail has been found in. But if you have multiple folders with the same name, this information is quite useless.
This sample demonstrates how to get the folder's path. Additionally, it offers to switch to the folder.
If you used the direct search, you can select one e-mail of the result in the folder and call the macro; if you used the advanced search, it's necessary to open the e-mail and then call the macro.
As always, copy the code into the module "ThisOutlookSession". You can either call it by pressing ALT+F8, or customize the toolbar and drag the macro on it.

If TypeOf obj Is Outlook.Inspector Then
Set obj = obj.CurrentItem
Set obj = obj.Selection(1)
Set F = obj.Parent
Msg = "The path is: " & F.FolderPath & vbCrLf
Msg = Msg & "Switch to the folder?"
If MsgBox(Msg, vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
Set Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = F
