Searching for messages

You can search for a message by any of the following criteria:

  • address or name of sender
  • address or name of recipient
  • Email subject
  • message text
  • date of sending or delivery
  • name or extension of an attached file
  • text of the attached document

To find an email, enter the request in the search box (top right) and click Find.

If you are in a certain folder or are viewing emails with a certain label, Mail will, by default, search in this particular folder or among emails with this label. For example, when looking through emails with the label From Spock, after the search operation you will be able to see only emails from Spock, irrespective of the request.

Attention! If you are in the Inbox folder, after the search operation there will be emails available from all folders of your mailbox, except the Spam folder .
Note. The search algorithm also analyzes Russian morphology. For example, if you query [quote], you will be able to find messages containing such texts “Please find attached the project quote” and “Which of the two quotes is based on the new prices?”.

If the required email was not found, make sure that the words in the request are written without mistakes, try to reduce the number of words in the request. If you also remember any additional message attributes (such as names of attached files), specify them in the search query as well.
