Office 365 (Apple Mail) - Search/Find Messages

This document explains how to search/find messages using Apple Mail. These instructions are for Mac OS 10.9, but are likely to be similar for Mac OS 10.5-8.

To search/find messages, use the search bar in the upper right, and choose a suggestion. To improve your search:


  • Use the search filters to specify which mailbox you want it to search in.


  • In the search bar, specify your search further by adding Boolean phrases such as AND, OR, or NOT. They must be in capital letters. (e.g Turkey NOT Bird OR Food)
  • If you want to include, Trash, Junk, and Encrypted Messages in your search results, go to Mail -> Preferences -> General.
