There’s no point keeping all of your contacts if you can’t search for and find a contact when you need it. Watch this video to scope and refine your search.
Narrow your search
Getting too many results when you search on complete or partial information? Consider further refining your search. When you click the Search People box on the People tab, the SEARCH TOOLS tab appears.
There are a lot of options here to help narrow your search, including the following groups of options on the SEARCH TOOLS tab:
Scope : Change the folders you want to search in.
Refine: Search for people who have phone numbers in their contact information, or other specific types of information.
Options: Use previous searches or change advanced search
Search from your inbox
You also can search for contacts from any folder in your mailbox. If you are sending an email and you want to look someone, up in the Find group, in the Search People box, type the name of the person you want to find. You can enter a partial name, a first or last name, an e-mail address, a display name, or a company name.
