5.1 Understanding GroupWise Find

Like other search engines, the GroupWise search engine creates an index of whole words that are contained in the items being searched. When you search with the Find tool, GroupWise attempts to match your search criteria with the words in the search index. Because the Find tool searches for whole words, Find does not locate partial words or punctuation.

The following are examples of how you can look for an email with “Project status meeting next Tuesday” as the subject:




meeting tuesday


All items with either “meeting” or “tuesday” in the subject.

meeting *day


All items with “meeting” followed immediately by a day of the week in the subject.
