The Search tab is an easy-to-use feature that allows you to filter your email looking for matches to the criteria you enter into the search field.
Important Note: If you're on any other tab in your email, there will be a plus sign (+) on the Search tab. By clicking on the +, you can expand your search tool, without actually clicking and going into the Search tab itself.
The Search tab offers the following customizable search options:
Folder Drop-Down: You can select any of the folders in your email account to search with this option.
Text Field: Enter in any word or combination of words you're looking for.
Email Drop-Down: You can select whether you want the Search to check the Subject, Body, To, Cc, BCc, or From fields of your saved emails.
Once you input your criteria into the search form above, just click Go and the search will run and return any matches to the information you asked it to search for.1
