Windows 7: Windows Live Mail WLM Search

Windows Live Mail WLM Search

Hi.

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,

Nige.

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

Thanks.

Search message text Windows Live Mail 2011
I need to search one of my WLM 2011 folders for a word that appears in the text of the folder's messages. I see that in 2009, there was some concern about doing this, which directed people to LiveMailFix.reg, but since I have WLM 2011 and that thread is some years old, I'm guessing that problem has...

Windows Live Mail 11 64-bit search?
Hit there! Does anyone know if Windows Live Mail 2011 includes the 64-bit search that the previous version lacked? WLMail 2011 lists Windows 7 as a system requirement so I am hoping the answer is yes, seems like it should be. But it seems like the search isn't picking up content from the...
