  • Question

  • Hi folks

    Can anyone offer an answer for the following. 

    Let's say I have an Email within my Inbox, and it has the word "E-card" in the Subject or Body. If I perform a search within OWA, this will not return any results....however, if I search for "-card", I get all the results I would expect.....

    Is there any Microsoft Statement or can you offer an explanantion as to why it would behave in this way? i.e ignore the preceding "E" and only acting upon the rest of the word...

    Cheers for any offerings.

  • Hi MIllardus,

    I am using exchange 2010, maybe there are some difference between the exchange 2007 and exchange 2010.
    How about use E card, what is the result?
    If the issue still exists, it maybe by design.

  • Hi Millardus,

    Which version of exchange do you use?
    Per your description, I also create some emails which the key work "E-card" in the subject and body, I also do a test to search the "E-card", and could search the result.

    Regards!

  • Hi Gavin, Thanks for taking the time

    I am on Exchange 2007, SP3 RU3V2. What is your system?

    I sent myself an email with "e-card" in the body, moved it into a subfolder of my Inbox, searched on the Inbox and selected "Folders and Subfolder", but it comes back with "No Items Found".

    Even if I highlight the sub-folder, search directly on that, it still says "no items found". And yet, if I remove the "E", and just type in "-card", it finds it.

    Any ideas?
