=> This search will locate all emails with the word “finance” in the subject (also NOT case sensitive)

  • “Body:Computer Science”

=> This search will locate all emails which contain the words “computer science” in the body of the message (also NOT case sensitive)

  • “Date:10-Aug-2018”  

=> This search will locate all emails that have the date field of 10 August 2018, irrespective of time. NOTE: The format here is precise and must be “day dash abbreviated month dash full year.”

  • “Date:>10-Aug-2018”  

=> This search will locate all emails that have a date field after 10 August 2018, irrespective of time. NOTE: The format here is precise and must be “day dash abbreviated month dash full year.”
