Windows 7: Windows Live Mail WLM Search

Windows Live Mail WLM Search


OK, got the content search enabled in W7x64HP and WLM. That works fine. . . But I have some pretty enormous emails, like email reflectors with 1000's of words.

So I've now found that important email I've been looking for but without reading the entire content, which a single email could take an hour. . . I need to acheive a free text search INSIDE the message to locate the specific content I need.

Any thoughts on how best to do this, without locating the .eml and parsing it or some other equally convoluted method??

TIA, regards,


WLM 14.0.8089.0726

Just open the message and press F3. A search box will appear and you can search the message for your keyword.
