I'd like to search for an email that contains an excel attachment. I'm using outlook.

I know I can do

hasattachment:true

but this matches any attachment type

I've also tried,

attachment:*.xlsx

but this doesn't work

It's a little backwards, but you can do this with

xlsx hasattachment:true

This worked well. I did however get one false positive though, but it has reduced my searching time down a lot. Thanks –  Nathan Koop Oct 19 '09 at 17:16

Try this - it's just slightly different than what you tried and it works for me. Via the documentation.

attachments:.xlsx
