Dear Experts

We recently migrated to office 365 premium edition and I have downloaded the office 2016 configured my account in ms outlook and in offline settings have enabled the use cached Exchange Mode and Mail to keep offline is set for 12 months but when apply search it shows only to last few days where as I have mails from several months and this does not show up.

2. ms outlook search is not that great when we apply email in the search or any content phrase it does not filter exactly instead it shows relevant and non relevant and the list of messages is too many to locate what we exactly looking for, is there any best practice to apply search please suggest.  

request to please support on above 2 issues , thanks in advance

thanks one and all, have noted all these points and will proceed accordingly.  I am using the cached exchanged mode for all the end users who are using laptop/desktop  for the period of 12 months for the reason if they go offline due to internet down they should still be able to access the messages during last 12 months -- please suggest is this recommended

2. also can you please suggest how and where the offline cached mode can be set for iphone default mail App, and also for andriod devices please
