How to Use Search to Find Messages in Imail

  • The search messages option allows you to locate messages based on criteria you enter. It compares the text you type to the entire message (body and headers). 

    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 search.
    3. Click on the magnifying glass, then select search messages.
    4. Enter the string you are trying to match, then hit the Enter key.

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