I know I can put in an email address in the search box in Gmail to find the messages sent either to or from that email address. However, I have a situation where someone was supposed to send me details about an email address in the body of the email.
I have one message that I know contains the email address in question within the body content, and I'm trying to see if I received others, but when I put that address in the search box, nothing returns. I have tried specifying
body: in the search, as well as enclosing the email address in quotes, but it never shows up.
Is there any way to search for addresses that are not part of any to/from fields? Anything special I have to do to escape the
@ sign, or something like that?
