Hi, We use Outlook 2016 for our job and I'm looking to do an exact search for an email address. But it keeps removing the '@' in my search. What can I do to search for the whole address?

    By default, Outlook can only search current mailbox/current folder that you are in currently, unless specifically mention (using option) to search subfolders as well. As you mentioned, whole address, assuming you wanted to target who the email is from; subject line; and even attachment also. Navigate to outlook options, and select search from left pane. When it opens, select all possible checkboxes/radio buttons which are applied for your better search. Also corrupted ost/pst might cause for this reason. You can run scanpst to make sure about that.

    How are you entering the scan? Have you put the email in single quotes to see if it will take the @? Also if the search failed, did you try the ' Try searching again in All Mail Items'? Search all mail item.
