modify outlook "find related messages" criteria

Posted on 2011-10-18

does anyone know if it is possible to change the default criteria for "find related messages" when it is selected by either right clicking on a message in a folder then selecting "find all" and selecting "related messages" or if a message has been replied to or forwarded then you can open the message and click on the "you replied bar ......" and select "find related messages".

all this does is create an advanced find and places the criteria for conversation is(exactly) and populates it with the subject text.

i would like to modify this to add more criteria such as contains to and from so that it narrows the search down to that conversation only and not just any mail that has the subject text in the subject field.

thanks in advance for everyones help

    Accepted Solution

    Find related is a subject based search.  I am unaware of any way to modify it directly other than in the advanced search dialog that results from the find related.

    Alternatives are for example a vba function to undertake the advanced find.
