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.
There are some weird things going on with the contacts, especially with my Desktop Outlook. MS Support has been trying to the problem fix since December and now has an engineer working on it.
OK, I have not figured out what is causing all the problems with my contacts in my desktop Outlook, but I did solve one of the problems.
We have been trying to locate the “Sub Folders” and the reason that we cannot locate them is there is no Sub Folders.
A Sub Folder is an organizational folder on a computer that is located within another folder
When you select Sub Folders it pulls up ALL contacts in all categories, including the ones that is not listed in any category.
It is used so that you can find all Contacts no matter how little information the contact has and even if you do not know what category they are listed in, or if they are not listed in any category.
The Contacts program should be written as follows.
Current Folder should be renamed to All Contacts and pull up what is pulled up now in the Sub Folder.
Then you could just click on the drop-down menu (image below) to select the Category, which also includes the contacts with no category.
agreed I don't see where to search for specific e-mails.
Where is the search mail and people function in the new version? I can't live without this function.
Currently able to search for people and mail in the search box in Outlook which is really useful, can we have people added to the search?

Same issue. I use this for business and NEED to be able to search my e-mails! Removing this was one of the stupidest moves in history of the internet. People need to be able to find emails, who wouldve thought.
When I would try to quickly search using the new field at the top of the screen, sometimes it would default to the filter button and then I'd have to click on search. It would also take longer with this function than the old version. Also, it seems like there are more steps to leave a search.
Search Mail and People function is not available in the New Outlook, making searches harder I really need this function, for the volume of work is very high.

On the Old Version to the left there you could search people or mail, in the New Version you can only search people. I need to be able to search for certain mail apart from just people.
