Searching for old emails


Could anyone tell me how to search emials for old messages? In the old format, you used to be able to type in a name or some indentifying info in the top right hand corner and do a search. I can't figure out how to do this in this updated version. 

Thanks much in advance. I appreciate your help!

The Search field for the new format is here----------------------

You will see that as soon as you start typing it will expand, and the folder being searched appears at the right end of it.  Click on the down arrow to select a different folder or all folders.

Note that in Comcast's newer Open-Xchange "Appsuite" webmail (""), hiding the Folders pane also hides the Search box. You may need to click the Show Folders link in the bottom left corner -- see Restoring the Folders pane also restores the Search box.
