It’s frustrating when you can’t find an item you know is in Outlook…somewhere.
If the item doesn’t turn up in a quick search of the current folder, you may want to
broaden your search to look for the item in more places. Enter the Search Tools: |
Search tab’s Scope section, where you can choose any of these options:
All Items (Alt, JS, A). The name of this button depends on the folder you’re
currently in; if you’re searching the Mail folder, for example, the button says All
Mail Items. Choose this option when you want Outlook to search a main folder
and all its related folders. So if you search All Mail Items, Outlook searches the
folders that contain email messages, including Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, and
so on.
Tip: When you search with the All Items button, hover your mouse pointer over any item in the results list
to see which folder Outlook found that item in.
