Searching for attachments in Outlook

March 5, 2016

 If you're looking for attachments in Outlook which contain a particular string in their file name such as a bates number prefix (e.g., the XYZ in XYZ0000000100), you can run a specialized search in the  box above and to the right of the table listing email messages.  [or just press CTRL + E]   Enter the search in this format:  


Attachments: "XYZ"


Such a search will pull up any attachments where the string "XYZ" appears in the file name - whether at the beginning, somewhere in the middle, or at the end.
