I wanted to search for emails by mid substring so for eg:
I want to be able to search using '358' or '3589'.
On my X220 running Outlook 2010 (on WIn 7 x64), I could not do so though
I could search by prefix substring ie 'SR-100035' & '100035'. Our corporate
laptop support has fully reindexed all archive & mailboxes on my Outlook
2010 & even upgraded it to Outlook 2013 but no joy.
On my Outlook 2003 (running on 32bit X61 with Win XP), I am (& still could)
search by mid substring ie '358' or '3589'.
Has MS deprecated this mid substring search?
If not, what did I miss & how to fix this?
Is searching by a shorter 'substring' keyword faster?
Eg: '3589' is faster than '10003589'? My purpose is not
only for faster search but also to save me 'typing' in my
search of hundreds of thousands of "alert" & "SR" emails.
In our multiracial organization, sometimes, I'll need to
search by middle or first or last name in the emails but
I don't know in the various cultures, what's their first,
mid & last names
I'll move to SSD if needed to make the search faster but
still would like to save me the extra typing.
