How to Search and Filter an Exchange Online Data Source

  • Last updated on

Use the following steps to search and filter Exchange Online data:

  1. Log into, and select the Cloud-to-Cloud Backup Source in the left pane.
  2. Navigate to the Protect page from the top navigation menu, and select the Exchange data source.
  3. Using the search bar, type in a search term. The results displayed are all messages in which the subject line or top-level folder contains the text you're searching for. For example, typing in "budget plan" will return all results with those words in the subject line or top-level folder. 
    You can also use the guided search icon (guidedSearch.png) next to the search bar to add additional search criteria.
  4. Use the FILTER button to filter the results within a specific mailbox. Fill in the filter options:
    • Mailbox – Must be a partial or full email address. Use this filter to display results within a specific user mailbox.
    • Type – Any, Calendar, Contact, Email, or Contacts
    • From – Must be a partial or full email address
    • Sent – Date ranges to search 
    • Attachment – If the data contains an attachment
  5. Click APPLY to display the results.


Example 1. 

  1. Searching for “chrisg” will return the top-level folder of their mailbox unless you also have emails with that search term in the subject line. 
  2. Adding a sent date or a From address filter will not return any results as the object does not have either of these attributes.

Example 2. 

  1. To find an email from Barracuda Networks support, include a search term, such as "Barracuda", from the subject line.
  2. Filtering this list using “Barracuda Networks Support” in the From address filter will not return any results because it is not an email address. You must use a partial or full email address in the From address filter. 
  3. Filtering the same results using an email address, mailbox, and sent date produces a manageable list of results. For example,
