Global Search by Email Address

To do an effective global search for an email address, you should enter the complete email address, in the format <user name>@<domain>.

If you use this format, global search treats this entry as a single keyword and returns anyone with that exact, complete email address.

This treatment of a recognized email address overrides the normal global search treatment of the . (period) and @ (at) characters as spaces.

For example:

The starts-with matching generally used by default in global search is not supported for email addresses because the complete email address is required for global search to interpret a keyword as an email address.
