Search messages

 

The basic way to search is to simply type in a word or phrase in the Search box. You can type a number of phrases in the Search box.

When a simple keyword search can't find the e-mail you're looking for, you can use various operators, punctuation, and keywords to narrow your search results.

Search reference tables
The following table shows you some searches you might find useful. In addition to these examples, you can use AND, NOT, OR, <, >, =, and other operators to refine your search.

The advanced search queries and operators are available for v4.90 and above.
