I need to perform a text search in Outlook e-mails subject and/or body, looking for two-character string that represent a code in our business. The problem is that these codes can assume forms like '@B', '£Z', etc. One of the characters could be a symbol.
For example, when I try to search for a string like '#R', Outlook is giving me lots of results with subject starting with 'R'. It seems like special characters are ignored when specifying text to search for.
I tried surrounding with quotation marks or apostrophes, no way. I tried escaping the special character as '/#' '\#' and '&hash;' but nothing changes either.
How can I search symbols in the e-mail subject?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
