You're right. I usually search within a folder and if I can't find something I move the search up to a higher level folder. The search results should be displayed with the same column headers you have set for all email. If one of those headers is "Account" that should narrow it down somewhat.
Also, if you inspect the message and know where it should be placed you could search that folder to see if it is or right-click on it and select "move to".
You could also right-click on it and select "mark as unread" to make it appear in bold type so it would be easier to find. Similarly, you could just "flag" it.
If you're trying to test a Message Rule, you could move the message to a the Inbox of the account it arrived in and use the message rule to move it to see if it worked.
