I am so done with Outlook.com email. Why is everything so freaking difficult?
I did what I thought was an easy search for an email that contained the word "Paystub" (in every example, I didn't search with quotes, those are just for clarification in this post). I know for a fact that I have at least 30 emails that contain this word. Searching "Paystub" brought back nothing. Searching "Pay stub" brought back nothing. I had to manually search a years worth of emails to find the one I wanted. It was an email where the subject was "Paystubs". Furious, I went back to the search to find out the problem. I searched "Paystubs" and brought back nothing. I did an Advanced Search with the word "Paystubs" for the subject line. Finally gave me the result. For giggles, I Advance Searched the word "Paystub" in the subject line, and came back with zero results.
Pathetic. Gmail never pissed me off like this. Good thing I kept my old Gmail address. Time to switch. If Outlook.com wants to fail at the simple things, I'm just not going to bother using it.
