Sorry, I’m way behind with Email, but there’s an easier way if you just want to search for an Email.
Press Control E, then type in your search term and press enter. You land immediately back in the list.
If you want to search for a message from Debbie for example, again, Control E and type from:Debbie, without spaces. It will look for all Debbies in the list.
If you want to search for just one Debbie, add enough information to make it unambiguous.
It’s just easier than F6’ing around the place.
You can also do Subject: To: etc.
All the best

If you are using MS365, then I am assuming the email client is Outlook. To do a find press Control + Shift + F. You will land in a field in which you can type a search term. If that is what you are searching for type the term. Then tab and you will be in a combo box where you can choose the search term to be either located in just the subject or in
both the subject and body of the emails.
If you are looking for email that was sent from or sent to someone, tab passed these fields and you will find fields in which to enter either the from or to names.
After you have entered the search terms you want press enter. When the search is complete you will get the message “find now.” Once you get that message press F6 and you will be in the list of messages it found.
I hope that helps!
Take care and stay safe!

Hi Brian and list,
First, let me apologize for being so far behind on reading emails.
Back when I was using Windows Live Mail. I could search for a particular word in any folder or subfolder by going through the menus/ribbons without any problems.
Now, after using MS365 for around 15 months now, I still can’t figure out how to use the search feature.
I could come up with around 5 or 6 additional problems that I have with MS365 but I don’t want to give myself a headache thinking about them.
I use MS365 because it is better for me than any thing else that I have tried. Including Windows mail and Thunderbird and the web mail that Gmail and A T and T offer.
So, I’m not saying that it isn’t the best thing going, but, at least for me, I still can’t do some very basic things like search folders for a certain word or phrase.
For example, the hot key like Control, Shift, A goes in to advanced search. That works fine for me. But following the prompts/understanding the menus from that point to find what Iam looking for just isn’t working for me. I’ve run in to dead ends with other things that were very easy with WLM.
James & Alan,
