Search Folder not getting all emails OUTLOOK 2010 - EXCHANGE 2010 -

I've noticed that one of my search folders in not finding everything it should.

I do not use Local CACHE.
The failure also occurs with OWA.

I have an email from "Carlos@abcxyz.com"

I have a search folder that is created to find "abcxyz" in  "frequently-used text fields"

The search folder does NOT contain the original email from  "Carlos@abcxyz.com"
But,
I DOES CONTAIN my response to Carlos where his address is now part of the body of the email (since the reply has his address block).

?question: What is the list of "frequently-used text fields" when searching mail?
?question: If search doesn't do partial matches, how did it find  "abcxyz" in the body of the reply?

thanks for any insight.

I've done some quick testing and am seeing the same results as you.  In my search folder though, I did click Advanced and specified a criteria of
From Field      Contains      abcxyz.com
This does work.

It is apparent, then, that the Frequently Used Text fields does not include the address fields.  I did some quick searching on the web and haven't found a specific answer to exactly which fields are included in Frequently Used Text fields.

IF you go to advanced find and drop down the field list you can reveal a list of what's considered 'frequently used text fields' and the From Address is included. I would guess that the default is "Equal to" but under advanced you can specify 'contains'

I'm thinking the Frequently-used Fields in the Advanced tab is different from frequently-used text  fields from the Messages tab.  The dialogue indicates to search for the specified word(s) IN frequently-used text fields.  Using the Advanced tab, as we both mentioned, will allow the search to include the address fields.

well this is very confusing.
I just created an save as draft an email with To address as: test@testSearchFolder.com

I then created a search folder with criteria of "testSearchFolder.com" in frequently used fields and it worked just fine and found the one email.

does it still find it if there are multiple addresses in 'to'' field?
@omgang, you may be correct, I find it bizarre that it would be done  that way but the more I look at outlook vba the less comprehensIble their design decisions become

none of these were the issue.
there are two address field types - one is the display and one is the actual address. It was looking in the display not the address. I added something that let me get at the other field, but, I can't remember how now.
