If I want to insert an agenda item i.e. Outlook item e.g. from 6 months ago into a Calendar meeting is there any quick way to search for the item other than scrolling through it?

Hi agwalsh,
Outlook search feature is very robust. You should be able to type a term into the instant search bar and find any outlook item from all mailboxes. Use the Search toolbar to refine the scope of the search

I agree with you on that..BUT specifically if I go to Calendar | Insert | Outlook Item | is there any quick way for me to search for a specific email from perhaps 6 months ago? I can't see any option to do so but I'm just checking.

How about doing it in reverse: Search for the message, and from the message, choose Message>Meeting.

hm, suppose I want to put this message into a specific already existing meeting. Your suggestion assumes the creation of a meeting from this message? Thanks though :-)

I think in that case you can drag and drop the found message into an existing meeting. I do not see any other way to do a through search from within a meeting
