  2. limit the search to a specific folder

    There seems to be no way to limit the search to a specific folder, ie. you archive or inbox.

  4. The search function is not as functional as the previous version

    The previous version had great advanced options that appeared on the left of the screen to narrow down your search - specifically for example if I search for a word and then it allows me to select "from" email address - this is not easily done in the new version.

  6. Search is still TERRIBLE

    You should be able to search To:, From:, Subject:, etc. just like the desktop version.

  7. deeper search option

    Offer deeper search in new outlook.
    Currently when I search in the new outlook it doesn't pull up all of the search results, only the more recent. I had to switch back to the old outlook to pull up older messages

  8. Search feature needs to be more visible

    I couldn't find a search box or tool. It may have been there, but I couldn't find it. It needs to be more obvious.

  9. Introducing categories in the search function

    Good idea that search function is now extended to keyword. However, if you just want to search for e.g. a sender, you get too many results, because all mails will be listed where the sender's name mentioned in the text. Would be easier, if you introduce search categories, like:
    - from
    - to
    - cc
    - bcc
    - subject
    - keyword

    Other users may have further ideas.

  11. search in folders

    Why can't you search a folder for specific people anymore. You can search by size and date but not people.

  12. Search folder

    Enable Search folders in OWA, this is a brilliant option. It would be better if Search Folders were synced through other Outlook Apps too, like Desktop, Android & etc...

    We should be able to search any type of Outlook item (Mail, People, Calendar, Notes and Tasks). It'll be even better if we can search through Teams messages too.

  14. search and find needs improving

    Search fails to open the email it has found! A list appears with yellow highlight of search keywords, but when you click the email it opens another email. The original email was sent in a mass broadcast and the search is for a reply from one person in the broadcast. When selecting the search found item it opens a chain of emails relating to the broadcast but the one I need is not visible. This is a basic need and a bug in Outlook.

  15. Search Suggestions/Autofill Is Inconsistent

    The suggested/autofill for search doesn't seem to consistently work - it sometimes doesn't return autofill/suggestions as you start typing (or will only present suggested searches after you conduct a keyword search and click into the search box again) but sometimes does and when you start typing a contact it doesn't always return a search for messages from that sender.

  16. searching email is very difficult

    Searching some e-mail is very difficult. Especially when we do not know about some person's e-mail and we have only their name, its not working.

    It should show with date (i.e. 09-Feb-2019) but only time and day is appearing.

    Sometimes delay in sending e-mail is not working even though it is already set.

    Even if I already red the e-mail, still it is appearing as unread. Sometimes, vice versa also.

  19. Search Mail and People option

    I dont see "Search Mail and People" option in the new version. This was very useful in older version to find an e-mail or contacts.

  20. Please bring back the HELP search bar!

    The search bar in the "?" menu was super-helpful in the old version. I could find quick links to everything I needed there, quickly and easily. It is the biggest reason I'm switching back to the old version.
