Searching My Archive
Learn how to search and retrieve your personal emails and
attachments. Please note that the advanced search
functionality is only available for the "Messages" views.
In all searches, there is an "AND" relationship
implied between all the search fields listed above.
In all search fields (except Date range and Folders), you can use "OR", "AND", and "," operators between search terms if you are searching for multiple terms.
You have the ability to thoroughly search your personal
archive with the advanced search option which gives you access
to several fields for better search refinement. The following
fields are displayed on the advanced search popup window:
* Start date / End date. For the date
range, you can either manually specify a date or browse
through the calendar by day, month or year. You can also use
the "Today" button if you are looking for messages sent or
received "today", as illustrated below.
* Any Address: Field where the email address(es) mentioned is either a sender OR recipient.
* Body: Has Words / Does Not Have Words
* Attachments: Has Words / Does Not Have Words.
* Folders (A list a folders is available for GroupWise users using folder replication).
Once you are done populating the desired fields, click on the
search button at the bottom of the left-hand pane to perform
Wildcards query operators
You can use wildcard operators to
locate messages and/or attachments based on partial
terms. You can use the asterisk ( * ) operator to
locate messages and/or documents that contain specified
partial terms. For example:
pay* - Denotes any term that begins with “pay” (such as “pay”, “payday”, or “payee”).
*@acme* - Denotes any term that contains the strings “@acme” (such as “acme.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
43931* - Denotes any term that starts with the sequence “43931” (such as “43931.00” or 43931226).
You can use the question mark (?) operator to locate messages that contain a specified term, with a given character replaced. For example:
“???? ???? ???? ????”- Denotes any term that contains four sets consisting of four characters each with a single space between sets (4417 1234 5678 9012, a common format for credit/debit card numbers”).
“???\-??\-????” - Denotes any term that contains a set of three characters, followed by a dash, followed by two characters, followed by a dash, followed by three characters (i.e. 123-45-6789, a common format for U.S. social security numbers). See the section below “Searching for Terms that Contain Reserved Characters” for the explanation of “/” use.
?inks - Denotes any term that contains any character proceeded by the string “inks” (such as “links” and “rinks”).
“well gra?e?” - Denotes any phrase beginning with the term “well” followed by a space and then a term that contains the string “gra”, followed by any character, followed by the letter ‘e’, followed by any character (such as “well graded” and “well grates”).
