When you view the Users or Domains pages in the Mail Administration Console, you see a complete list of all the user accounts or domains in your company. Instead of scanning the list to find what you want, you may want to narrow your search to a subset or a single entry. To narrow you search you can use the filters at the top of the page, or you can use the Jump box.
Using filters to find a domain or user
On the Domains or Users page, you can use filters to search for domains or users that meet specific criteria.
To search for a domain or user
- Log in to the Mail Administration Console (MAC).
For more information, see "What is the MAC?"
- In the navigation pane, click Domains or click Users.
- In the text field at the top of the page, enter your search criteria. You can use * and ? wildcards to represent part of the name.
- Optionally, click one or more of the associated checkboxes to narrow your search. You can select the domain or user type, and for users, you can also choose the workgroup to which the user belongs.
- Click Refresh.
Using the Jump box
The Jump box, which is found at the top left corner of every page, is a way to quickly find the domain or user that you want. Simply enter your search criteria in the box and press Enter.
If you specify the complete domain or user name and a match is found, the searched for domain or user is displayed. If you use wildcard characters in your search, you will see a list of all of the domains or users that match your criteria.
Using wildcard characters in searches
When performing a search, you can specify an exact match or you can use the and wildcards. The * wildcard matches 0 or more characters while the ? wildcard matches exactly one character. Both the Jump box and the Search field support the use of wildcard characters, and you can use wildcards multiple times in the same search.
Here are some examples of wildcard searches:
