Re: Question About Outlook 2016 E-mail Search Function

This is the set of steps I originally tried, and that worked for me previously.
For some reason, though, I can’t get them to work any longer.
But, some folks on the list have given me alternative steps which do work, so I think I’m now all set.
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my original quiry.

Subject: Re: Question About Outlook 2016 E-mail Search Function
The fact that you are running your personal g-mail account through Outlook should not matter. I am still using Outlook 2010 with Windows 7, so I probably see something different than you with 2016, but after I type the words or names that I am looking for, I tab down 2-3 times until I get to a close search button and press the space bar and it takes me directly to the actual email that I am looking for.
I did as you suggested, and, even though I got a message list, it seemed to be a random list of messages whose origin I can’t figure out. May be part of “all mail”.
Perhaps I should have clarified in my last post that I’m running my personal g-mail account through Outlook 2016, which may be part of the problem.
However, I have been able to get this search function to work in the past.
