Search for a piece of mail

When you're in Outlook - you can make simple searches just by typing in the search box at the top.  Some examples of things to search for:

  • One or more words you're searching for
  • A person's name (first, last, or full name)
  • An email address (of someone who you're looking for mail from, or someone you sent mail to)
  • A phrase surrounded by quotes.  For example searching for "New Paltz" would find emails only with those two words togehter since they are surrounded by quotes.  Just searching for: New Paltz (without quotes) would show mail with either word.

If you are searching for something common, searching for a specific message from a person that you recieve a lot of email from, or other reasons you get a lot of searches, there are other options.  To access the Advanced Search options - click on the search box and click on "Filters" on the right of the box.
