Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Use Advanced Find to locate messages, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] There's a more powerful version…of search that you can use called Advanced Find.…And there are usually two reasons you'll use this.…First, you have a lot of messages,…but you also have a lot of information…about the message you're looking for,…about multiple conditions.…You know you received it last month.…You know who it was sent by…and you know a phrase from the message, for example.…Or you know that you received it last year…and that it had an attachment and who it came from.…And in both of these cases, the person who sent it to you…is someone who is sending you many, many emails.…
So if you simply looked for messages that they sent you,…you would get a large volume of messages…you'd have to plow through.…The other possibility is,…regardless of how much information you have…to search for a message,…when you search you get back too many results.…So now you really want to be able to use…some much more granular tools and be specific,…because you realize you know a couple of things…and could look for messages that way.…
