Outlook 2013 search settins

I recently updated to outlook 2013 from 2010. in 2010 when I entered text in the search field it only showed the emails received, but in 2013 it also shows matching email from the send emails, is there a setting I can set to only show results from received emails?

Windows Search Location will show Outlook and Users, so no, no way for Windows to constrain this.

Open Outlook highlight the folder you want and search that.

Otherwise let it show sent emails.

I immediately file Sent Emails in the folder it belongs to and so my Sent folder is always empty. This avoids the issue.

Hello Abraham,

It is possible to avoid Sent items from your search. That is. there are options to exclude specific folders in mailbox searches in MS Outlook. And they are:

1- Applying a permanent filter to the Message View
2- Defining a new ‘Search Filter’ view
3- Creating a Search Folder with a folder scope and filter

To know more about each method, refer the blog: https://www.msoutlook.info/question/867
It describes proper steps to exclude a particular folder from while searching in Outlook 2013, 2010, 2007 versions.

Hope this will be helpful.
Thanks & Regards,
