How should I perform wildcard searches in my Barracuda Message Archiver's Search Log?

Solution #00003603

All Barracuda Message Archivers, all firmware versions.

Search terms with wildcards are interpreted from left to right when entered on the Basic > Search page. The first term in such a search cannot be a wildcard (an asterisk (*)).

Additional Notes:
For example, if you want to find email to or from the address user@company.ac.co.uk then you can search using these terms:
  • company.ac*
  • company.ac.*.uk
The following search terms will not match user@company.ac.co.uk:
  • *.ac.co.uk (wildcards cannot be first)
  • ac.*.uk (the domain starts with company, not ac. It will match the domain ac.co.uk, however)
Additionally, you can use the search type "Domain" to search for any emails which have a sender or recipient with the domain specified.

The Barracuda Message Archiver uses the @ symbol and spaces as delimiters, so you can search for personal names, usernames, or domain names individually as well.

A helpful Barracuda Message Archiver searching guide is attached to the bottom of this solution.
