Searching for an Exchange item

There may be instances when you want to search for an item by a keyword, such as a term related to a specific project, or a person’s name, such as the name of a former employee. For each circumstance, you could have different search criteria. Mailbox Restore accommodates such events by offering two methods to search for items within the Exchange data store:

Basic search. Lets you perform a Quick Search for keywords in one or more fields. This is typically used when searching for messages.
Advanced Search. Lets you search for multiple keywords by using a tree query and can be used to search for any Exchange item.
