Find emails with specific recipients, senders, or subjects.

GoldFynch search allows you to search for emails matching specific metadata fields. Email metadata contains information about the email - including the email sender and recipients.

GoldFynch recognizes the following metadata fields:

  • From - who the email sender is
  • To - who the email recipient is
  • Subject - what the subject line of the email is
  • Cc - who is being copied
  • Bcc - who is being blind-copied

All fields except subject can be formatted in two ways:

  • from: name@address.com
  • from: name

How to search by email metadata

Basic query format

Specific email metadata fields can be made into a search query using the format field : query.

An example

For example, to search for emails from jonsmith@goldfynch.com, the following query can be used:

from: jonsmith@goldfynch.com
Email from search

Another example

To search for all emails containing the word meeting in the subject line, the following search query can be used:

subject: meeting
Email subject search

Partial queries

Query matches work with partial string values.

  • from: jon will also return results matching from: jon smith
  • subject: today will include items that have the subject meeting today
