If you can’t find a needed email using smart search, please follow these steps.
Specify the folder to search through
For Gmail accounts, Spark searches through all the folders except Trash and Spam. If you think the needed email is in one of these folders, add “in:” and the folder name to your search query. For example, “tickets in: Trash.” To search through multiple folders, separate their names with commas.
For non-Gmail accounts, Spark searches in Inbox and Archive by default. To look for emails in another folder, please specify its name in your search query. It can be a standard folder like Drafts or a custom folder you created.
Type “in:” and the folder name in the search field and enter a word or phrase you’re looking for. For example, “partnership in: Sent.”
