Searching Messages

SmarterMail provides an easy way to find the emails you are looking for. When viewing the messages in an email folder, click on the Search button in the bar above the message list. When you do, a second bar will appear with various options you can use while searching.

Search Text - The first field is the text you are looking for. Frequently, this will be an email address or a part of an email subject.

Search Type - Choose the type of search from the drop-down box; You can search the from address, the subject, or the body text of messages.

Folder to Search - Choose either the current folder or All Local Folders.

New Only - Check this box to only search messages that are marked as unread.

When you have entered all of the search criteria, click on the Find Now button. SmarterMail will then show you a list of all messages that match the search criteria, and you can click on a message to view it.

Note: Very large folders will take longer to search, as will searching multiple folders at once. For faster searching, choose a specific folder before initiating a search.
