Outlook Search Quirks
Some customers of mine have great troubles with Outlook and search results consistency between standard search and advanced search. I made some tests, here are the results :
Outlook Search :
- Only 250 results
- Search in cached and non-cached e-mails
- More efficient if you know the syntax
Outlook Advanced Search :
- Search only in cached e-mails
- Allow more complexes filters
Each method has hos pros and cons, you need to use the one that fit your search needs.
Note : Those tests were realized with Outlook 2016 and an Office 365 mailbox, results may differ with different versions/mailbox type.
