I was trying to search Outlook for an exact email address, which I was entering in quotes for an exact match per Microsoft's guide, such as: "firstname.lastname@example.org"
It wasn't enforcing an exact match as I was returning anything with user, domain, or .com in it.
I thought this was only a weird issue with searching email addresses, but after some testing I've found that exact search isn't working for any string.
Is there for some reason any setting that disables the ability to perform exact searches? Any idea why this would be happening?
