I have a computer running Windows 7 that has Outlook 2016 installed on it. My email profile is linked to my Microsoft 365 account.
Let me explain my set-up. Under my inbox I have numerous subfolders. As I receive incoming emails into my inbox folder, I move them into the corresponding subfolders. If I select a grouping of emails at the same time and move them to another folder (By either drag and drop, or right click move) They disappear from the inbox section and go to the target folder no problem.
Now lets say I need to filter the results in my inbox folder. I type something into the search box which filters the emails. When I select multiple emails and attempt to move them, the emails do move to the target folder, however it doesn't update the source filter in realtime and the emails will appear as if they didn't move.
Before anybody tries to tell me that it's because my filter is searching the entire mailbox that is not the case.
Yes, the target folders are subfolders of the Inbox, so doing a search of the entire mailbox and moving a group of emails to a subfolder will still technically keep them in the current filter. However, If I do a search\filter from just the current folder option the selected emails still do not update from my source filter.
If I move the emails, remove the filter, and then search the same filter again the emails don't appear anymore, so they are moving. The changes are just not updating in a realtime fashion from my search.
If I only select one email and move it from my filtered search, it will update the list in realtime. It only seems to happen when I choose a grouping of emails.
When I do this from outlook 2013 it updates just fine. There had to be some change in 2016 that either removed the realtime function, or has somehow damaged it.
Has anybody else noticed this issue? Is there possibly a registry hack I can do as a work around? Is there an update that solves this problem?
