Searching in Apple Mail

The search function in Apple Mail is one I use a ton because it's so useful and works really well. Let's say you got an email from someone but you just can't locate it; can't remember which folder you put it, in or maybe even who it was sent by. Just go up to the search bar and type in a name or a subject or a key word and Mail will search through all of your emails and find all of the relevant ones. From there you can choose from the list or narrow it down even further by clicking on the tabs that appear on top.

You can refine your search by clicking on All Mailboxes, Inbox and then search in the Entire Message, From, To, or Subject. But here's the cool part. If you perform a search often you can save that search by clicking on the 'Save' button on the far right. A box will open up and let you customize the search even further and then the saved search will show up with your other folders on the left side of Mail. Pretty cool. Oh, to get back to your regular email just erase what you typed in the search bar or press the little 'x'.
