Show search results for email attachments
I find that in Outlook, Search does look in the subject and contents. But the results include email with attachments. I can't find the searched word in the attachment or anywhere in the email. It needs to be more clear where the matching search is in attachments.
It looks like you display the search results for conversations, which is good.
I agree that the search function needs improving. I've just been trying to organise my Inbox and file into folders. You can search and drag and drop, but have to navigate to the folder, but it's not clear which folder the results are from.
I also don't understand 'the point of top results'.
I also find the conversation view difficult when searching - it's difficult to find the email with the attachment you want, for example, which can be frustrating.

Searching needs a lot more options, with attachments espcially.
Total agree, searching needs to be improved - a lot. It does appear to search on subject and content. But no way to select 'with attachment' or date range like the current outlook.com. But I think users need to be able to search for e-mails with attachments (no other criteria), and easily select if the person is 'sent to' or 'sent from,' search is specific folders, search for important or flagged e-mails. Too many missing feature/functions in the beta for it to be useable at this time. Nice look and feel, but not enough functionality for me.
