I wish this worked after I search.  Whenever I search for an email in Outlook 2016 and try to reply or forward, I get the message that I cannot save messages in a folder marked read only.  But if I navigate to that folder, I can reply and the email will save correctly, and if I go to options, I can choose to save it to the folder that it is in now.
