Part 14. Getting Started with Outlook > Finding an Email Message

Finding an Email Message

Click the Find button on the Standard toolbar to open the Find toolbar.

Type a keyword(s) in the Look for text box. This is the word that Outlook will search for in the Subject line and body of your messages.

Click the Search in button and select the Mail folder or folders you want to search. Select Choose Folders to search in a folder you created yourself.

Click the Find Now button; any matches are displayed in the Folder display area.

INTRODUCTION

Suppose you've received an email message that contains information you need, but you cannot remember which message it was. You do remember, however, some keywords that appear in the message. In that case, you can search for messages that contain the keywords you remember using Outlook's Find feature.


TIP

The Default Folder

Whichever Mail folder is currently open is the folder the Find feature searches by default. If you want to search in a different folder, be sure to select it in step 3.


Click one of the found messages to open it in the Preview pane.

To clear the search you just performed, click the Clear button. The search results are replaced by the contents of the folder that was open when you began the Find operation.

Click the Find button on the Standard toolbar to close the Find toolbar.
