I just upgraded to OS X Lion 10.7 and it included the new Apple Mail.

In Mail 4, I used to be able to choose where to search from (from/to/subject/all). How do I do this in Mail 5?

I read the help carefully, and I cannot figure out how to narrow the search. – Terry Gardner Jul 21 '11 at 9:09

You can use search tokens, e.g.

  • from:michael
  • to:bob
  • subject:hello

For more info please see the MacLife Article on using search tokens in Lion's Mail.

Start typing someone's name, then (in the search pop-up) select that name from the "people" list. This inserts a token in the search field. Click on this token to change it. You can then narrow the mailbox using the favorites bar.
