or Browse by Categories

The filter messages option allows you to locate messages based on criteria you enter. It compares the text you type to the current sort column.

  1. Click the X to the right of the filter messages/search in messages text box to clear any previous filters or searches.
  2. From the Folders list, click on the folder you wish to filter.
  3. Click on the magnifying glass, then select filter messages.
  4. Click on the desired column heading. The filter will compare the text you type to the current sort column values. (Note: A small triangle appears next to the heading in the current sort column.)
  5. Enter the criteria in the filter messages text box, then hit the Enter key.

The resulting list will display messages that match the filter criteria. To clear the filter and display all messages, click the X to the right of the filter messages/search in messages text box.
