Narrow search criteria in Outlook

The following table shows examples of searches you might find useful. The search query syntax, available when the Instant Search feature is enabled, follows this basic form: keyword:your search criteria value.

For example, from:bobby

You can also use logical operators AND, NOT, OR, <, >, =, and so forth to refine your search, and these are noted in the table. Logical operators must be typed in uppercase letters.

Note:  The search query syntax is created automatically and displayed in the Instant Search box when you use the Query Builder described in the previous section.

see the table at Learn to narrow your search criteria for better searches in Outlook.
