Now that your Inbox is under-control, you realize that you need to find an archived email. No problem! Let's search for the email:
At the top of your email window is the search bar, I am sure most of you have tried searching for something. Before you start typing, click on the small down arrow beside the magnifying glass. You will get a drop down box with more search options.
- The first Item is what locations do you want to search for your email, if you are looking for something that might have been trashed, you will need to change this to Mail & Spam & Trash.
- The second item is the From Field. If you remember who it is from, this will help narrow down your searches.
- The To field is if you sent the mail or it was sent to a group account.
- The Subject field will only search the subject of emails.
- Has the Words field is the best field to use, if you are just not sure, it will allow to search any part of an email for a phrase or keywords.
- For those of you that get a large number of similar emails, the Doesn't have field will help you narrow down your search.
- If you are looking for an email with an attachment, the Has attachment field will force the search to only return emails with an attachment.
- Don't include chats field will remove any chats that have been stored in your email archive.
- The Size field is only helpful if you are looking for a specific size file or a really large email.
- Date within can help you narrow your searches to a date range.
With all the various ways to narrow down your searches, you should be able to search through all your archived emails in no time!

The U.S. News Map also has a neat playback feature that allows you to see the frequency with which a term or topic appeared in newspspers between 1836 and 1925. For example, search the term "telephone" and you'll see peaks and valleys in the frequency of articles written about telephones. That playback feature could be a nice way to show students developments in technology!
