  • To - You can search by the recipient's full email address, part of their email address, the nickname or full name of those in your address book.
If you have filled in more than one field, then WebMail will search using the AND rule, e.g. if you fill in 'csmith@domain.com' in the 'From' field and the word 'jelly' in the Subject field, then the search function will search and display messages received from csmith@domain.com that have the word 'jelly' in the Subject.
 
* represents more than one character, e.g. if you would like to search for all messages that have originated from @domain.com, just type in *@domain.com in the From field. This will return all of the messages that have been received from @domain.com
 
? represents a single character, e.g. if you would like to search for a message with the Subject jelly but was not sure if jelly ended with a 'y' or an 'i', just type jell?.in the 'Subject' field and it will return the message or messages that have jelly as the Subject. However this will also include messages that have jello as the Subject. Please note that the search function is not case sensitive, e.g. searching for jelly will also find JELLY or Jelly and cannot search through attachments.
