Outlook 2007 Search Bar Shortcuts

Question asked on July 4, 2006 11:15 AM :: :: Comments (0) :: TrackBacks (1)

Microsoft has greatly expanded the Search Bar capabilities in Outlook 2007 from what was introduced in Outlook 2003.

When you type a search term into the Search Bar, Outlook searches the four main fields of an email message, the subject line, To field, From field, and the body of the message itself. You can quickly limit your search to one of these fields by typing the field name followed by a colon in front of your search term.

To search for all emails from me, you would enter


If you need to search for two or more words then you need to enclose the phrase inside of parentheses, ie:

from:(westley annis)

As you may have noticed from the examples, case does not matter when searching, so Westley is the same as westley.

To search multiple fields, separate the next field name with a space and follow the same format.

from:westley body:(microsoft outlook)
