    Find - Configuration

    I've been receiving Woody's Office Watch for a long time now but somehow missed all references to the lounge until today. What a fine place this is.

    Anyway down to business.
    Platform: Outlook 2000 SR1a on W2K Prof SP1 on Dell Latitude

    I have a problem in not being able to find how to configure the default characteristic for find in a folder. If you click on find for most mail folders it will search on "From" and "Subject". If you do the same on Sent Items it searches on "To" and "Subject". OK - that's all very sensible so far. But how to I get OUTLOOK to search on "To" and "Subject" for my archived Sent Items. And how to I get it to search on "From", "To" and "Subject" in mixed archive folders.

    I know I can do this using the advanced feature but I would really like to set the default behavior of the simple search. Anyone got any good ideas?

    how about saving an advanced find? you can even copy the find to the archive folder and run it from outlook.
