Searching Email

In a comment to an earlier blog post, someone asked about how you can search emails. It wasn’t quite clear which email program they might have been using, but here is how you search for emails using the webmail client we provide:
Click on Search Email in the upper part of the left menu. Then type in the partial word, word, or phrase you would like to search for inside the email. Next, select which folder to search—for many people leaving the setting on Inbox is what will work best. Finally, choose what part of the email message to look in to find the word(s). For instance, if I’m looking for email from, I can choose to search only the “from” field of my emails and this can greatly speed up the search as compared with searching “everywhere”.
