Which are the fields that are searched by my Search Contact box without having to specify a specific fieldname?

Many times I have to make a thorough search and I found out that there are fields that are not searched.

Thanks and God bless.

Thank you.

I would appreciate if someone knows which are the specific folders that are immediately searched when some letters are written at the Search Contact box inside MS Outlook 2010 without adding any concrete field. Thanks!

sorry! my email was wrong. I meant "fields"

regarding your list, well I found out that it works for the "department" field too. And I very much know that it works for "Job Title" too. So it is not complete.

That's why I'd appreciate that precise list. I imagine someone knows that :)

God bless!

i'm not aware of any official printed list of fields that are in the default search, although its possible Microsoft might have one at Office.com - the unofficial list (in my head) is what I've been able to find over the years. I don't usually use Job title and department fields so that's why they aren't on my list.
