Finding Messages

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


Many people receive a lot of mail every day.  Most of it is just advertising.  However, many people receive important mail which they need to save; and after a while, your Inbox (and other mail folders) may become very stuffed with mail.  If you are trying to find a certain message, you can use Outlook's extensive searching capabilities to locate your message.

Finding Messages

1.  Click the Find button from the right side of the Standard Toolbar.

2.  Click the Look for: text box and enter keywords for the message you are trying to locate.

3.  Click the Find Now button.  Messages that match the text you entered will be displayed in the pane at the bottom of the screen.

Tip:  If you don't find the message you're looking for, click the Advanced Find button above the Find Now button for even more customized searching.  This can make the chances much greater for finding your message.
