Improved filters
To help you narrow down the search results more quickly, we introduced filters in the search results. If you have multiple accounts connected to Outlook, you can focus your search a single account. You can also filter your results to only show emails with an attachment.

Pro tip: If you have a specific account selected in Mail, Search will auto filter your results to that account
