Search contacts by something other than name
Under "People" the search bar only finds results if searching by name. If you try to search by say, a company name, it will not return results. The old outlook would find results for your search term no matter what field that term was in. Please bring this back!
I can't believe this feature is not available. How can I use a list of thousands of contacts if I can't search through it using any field?
I'll have to abandon Outlook if this is not fixed.

Can't search by state or by email domain, really not acceptable and I will have to drop use of Outlook if this isn't fixed before old version is retired.
Why does this version of Outlook remove so much needed functionality?

It would be great to be able to search contacts by phone number. When someone from my company calls me who's number I don't have in my address book but is in the global address list, it would be great to look it up using the search functionality.
