The search bar is located above the currently-displayed mail folder. Click in the bar and type the search term.
The results won't be displayed until you do one of the following:
Click the magnifying glass icon.
Press Enter on your keyboard.
As you type, it will present options below the search bar. The default is Keyword, which looks for your search term in a message's body, subject, and major headers (To, From, Cc, Bcc). You can also select From, which looks for your search term only in the From field. Below From you'll see additional entries if it finds people in the directory or your contacts who match your search term.
In the left column are two additional options.
By default, all messages in all folders are searched, but you can restrict the search to the folder you're currently viewing or the current folder and its subfolders.
By default, all messages are shown, regardless of their date, but you can restrict the search to only those messages older than a week, older than a month, or older than a year.
To exit your search results, click the Exit Search above your top folder.
