subject search in e-mails search tool

searching for a word or subject in the search box for old  e-mails

Accepted Solution

Re: subject search in e-mails search tool

It is possible that a search will find messages without the search term in it because it was part of a conversation with one that does have it.  Here are the criteria you can try to use to narrow it down more----------------

Re: subject search in e-mails search tool

Exactly what is your question about searching?  Are you saying you did a search, or that you need to know how to search or what?  You need to provide better information.

Re: subject search in e-mails search tool

On open e-mail page, above the column on the left, 'folders' is the box with the familiar 'search' and a magnifying glass in it, try to type a word in it and the box disappears, and a new box appears with only an 'X' in it! Type a word in it, and a column comes up with the word in it to choose, like 'in text' and other choices. Click on any one, and sometimes some old e-mails come up, or mostly the term 'none found" comes up, even though you know there are many e-mails that the word or phrase is in it. Other times when old e-mails come up without the word I typed, and no relationship seems to exist to that word or phrase.
