My boss want all email sent from one user to another.  She doesn't know what the content or subject would be.  She just wants to know how many emails between the two.  

I have an Archive mailbox set up that all company email is stored in.  This is the location I'm searching.

I went to the search options, but as far as I can tell I need to search for some text.  See attached.

So my question is can I search between two people just by searching their names?

Easiest way is to load a mailbox and use a filter, such as:

from:(Sender Name) or to:(Recipient Name)

There are some other filters that may help as well, such as:

hasattachments:yes and/or subject:(keywords)
