Q. Can I do a more complex search in Outlook than just a few keywords or sorting by columns?
A. You bet! Outlook has some pretty robust search features. In Outlook 2010, you’ll notice that when you click into the Search Inbox field, a Search contextual tab pops up with buttons grouped into Scope, Refine and Options groups. You can extend your search to all Outlook items, refine by those items with attachments (which by the way, can be added to tasks and appointments, too!) and include additional refinements, like From, Start Date, etc. by clicking the More button.
