Basic Search Options

Description

Search by Keyword

Type keywords into the search bar to search for message that contain any of the entered keywords anywhere in the email message.

Keyword searches are not case-sensitive. For example, searches that use the keywords monday or Monday will return the same results.

Search by Exact Phrase

To search using an exact phrase, place quotation marks before and after the phrase.

For example, enter "today's meeting notes" in the search bar to view results that contain this exact phrase.

For information about searching using exact keyword matching (direct query), see Exact Keyword Matching.

Search by Sender

To search for emails from a particular sender, type from: in lower-case, followed by the sender's name.

For example, enter from: John Doe to search for emails sent from this name. You can also add quotation marks around the name to search by exact phrase.

Search by Recipient

To search for emails from a particular recipient, type to: in lower-case, followed by the recipient's name.

For example, enter to: John Doe to search for emails sent to this name. You can also add quotation marks around the name to search by exact phrase.

Note: When you search for emails for a specific recipient, search results do not include messages sent to a distribution group the recipient belongs to unless you include the distribution group in your query.

In the case of an end-user search, if you search based on the email subject, all the emails with the specified subject (including the emails sent to the distribution group the user belongs to) are returned.
