Undocumented Command Line Search

Re: Undocumented Command Line Search

Did you know that there's a command line search in XEC?

You can just type into the Main Search Box, or the X1 Deskbar Search Box:

command:blah

where "command" is the command you wish (see below), and "blah" is the text you wish to search for.


1. Commands for searching [Files_Tab]:

name:
type:
size:
path:
content:
date:


2. Commands for searching emails, eg [Email_Tab]:

content:
date:
from:
to:
cc:
subject:
client:
attachments:
foldername:


3. You can do boolean nested searches.
For example, if you're "pgk", you want to find any emails to/from "dawes", you would type in:

(from:pgk to:dawes) OR (from:dawes to:pgk)


4. Please note that all commands listed above in (1) and (2) can use only the first 2 letters as a shorthand command.
For example, below two commands are the same:

content:blah

co:blah


5. ***Please feel free to contribute anymore related tips on this thread, and I'll update this posting to reflect your undocumented command line search tip!

Anyone else found any other undocumented command line search tricks?

I'm fairly sure that there are other Commands available...
