Search for Outlook emails which EXCLUDE a specific recipient


I need to perform a search in outlook to look for emails which exclude a specific recipient.

i.e  I received 100 emails from abc@abc.com and my colleague was supposed to receive these also, but we need to check this.  So i want to perform a search in Outlook to look for emails received from abc@abc.com that HAVE NOT gone to my colleague i.e. colleague@abc.com

How can I do this?  Is there functionality in Outlook to do this?

You can try an advanced search in Outlook. If emails from abc@abc.com are supposed to be sent to the both of you then when you go into the advanced find under the Messages tab, place a check mark in the "Where I am" box and select from the options on the drop down menu. For instance, if both of you were supposed to be placed on the To line from abc@abc.com and only you were, it will bring up those messages and you will be able to see which ones your colleage was excluded from.
There is no functionality out of box in Outlook that will compare 2 mailboxes for same mail.

I used the advanced filter and selected where the email fields 'doesn't contain' and entered in the email address.
