MailDex also includes an Advanced search method where users can specify in detail how the search should be performed. Text can be searched for in From, Subject, CC, From message properties, the whole Header text, or Message body by adding clauses for each field and setting the correlated action such as AND, OR, and OR NOT.


The advanced search will filter out accordingly with the following fields: Subject, Body, Sender, Recipient, CC Recipient, BCC Recipient, Delivery time (received time), Submit time (Send time), Attachment name, and Attachment Content.

You can also filter by Groups. The ability to add a group of clauses can take your search to a whole new level. You can also save the search performed if you will use it again at a later time.
