I'm using Lotus Notes 8.5.2 in a large corporate deployment. I'm trying to figure out how to search my email in a structured manner, e.g. by specifying criteria on fields.
The help seems to suggest that I can use fields in square brackets and a list of operators, e.g. to find all mail where the
From field contains
John, I'd search for
/[From] CONTAINS John
However, I can't get this to work - any operator style query I've tried returns zero documents. "Web-style" queries (e.g. typing
John into the search dialog) work, but I'd really prefer a way that would let me search more precisely.
- I'm assuming that the field names can be taken from the list of things I see when I open a mail and look at its Document Properties.
- Full text indexing is turned off for my mailbox, and all my attempts to create my own have failed.
Does anyone have better information on searching by from/date/subject conditions in Notes?
