Search Fields


MailArchiva indexes as much information about a message as possible. This information is grouped into the fields listed below. For example, if one wants to search for the word "apple" in the body of an email, simply choose the "body" field in the Query Builder and enter "apple". Alternatively, enter "body:apple" (without the quotes) in the search box. The fields listed below are used in the formulation of search queries.
