Chapter 15. Communicating with Outlook > Finding and Filtering Messages

Finding and Filtering Messages

By using the Find pane in your Inbox, you can easily and quickly locate one particular piece of e-mail among what may be hundreds of stored messages. If you know that the message contains a specific word or phrase in its title, contents, or properties, you can conduct a search using that word or phrase as the criteria. If you assign categories to your messages, you can locate them searching by category. You can use a filter to view only the items that meet the conditions you have defined. For example, you can filter your messages so the only ones that appear are those that you flagged as high priority or have categorized as business items.

Find a Message

Click the Find button on the toolbar. The Find pane appears above the Inbox.

In the Look For box, type a word or phrase that is contained in the message you want to locate.

Click the Search In list arrow, and then select one of the options to narrow or broaden the scope of the search.

Click Find Now.

To redisplay all your messages, click Clear.
