To make searching messages and contacts in the Webmail easier, two new search functions have been created:
Quick Search and Extended Search
- “Quick Search” menu:
The menu has been placed above the Webmail menu, as shown in the image below
To make a quick search, simply type in the text that you wish to search in the search box.
The quick search can be made by using one or more keywords and uses “fuzzy” logic.
The search will provide both the messages that contain the exact keyword, and the messages containing words with the same root as the entered keywords.
For example, by using the keyword “Italy”, the results will also include messages with the word “Italians”.
The search will also be made in all the messages, (in the sender details, recipient details, subject …), in the body of the message and in the attachments.
Each message will be given a score, based on the relevance with the searched words and those with the highest score will be displayed first.
It is also possible to include or exclude the folders in which to search in
simply by going over the search box with the mouse a window will appear where you can select the folders in which to search.
You can go to the Extended Search by clicking the magnifying glass icon found in the form, or by clicking on:
Favorite Searches --> Create a new search request found in the menu on the left.
(alternatively you can use the results of a previous search)
The extended search window will open, where you can select one or more search criteria for searching messages.
It is possible to search in the messages or in the folders and use the “and” / “or” logical operator during the search.
To add search criteria simply click on one of the two options found in the menu at the top:
If you select the same criterion more than once the system allows you to use the logical operators.
To change the logical operator simply click on it.
The methods and the search criteria you use can be reused for future searches: in fact you can save your search, by clicking on: “Save Request”, so you can retrieve it at any time from the provided menu.
