Searching Email Messages in RoundCube

For searching email messages, first select the folder you want to search in the Mailbox folders list on the left. Then enter the search term into the search box above the messages list and press <Enter> on your keyboard to start the search. Search results will be displayed in the messages list.


Reset the search by clicking the Reset search icon on the right border of the search box. Switching to another folder will also reset the search and clear the search box.





Open the search options menu by clicking the search icon left in the search box. You can select which parts of the message should be searched for the entered term. Check Entire message to search them all.

You can also type specific search criteria directly into the bar, such as “from:Scott” or “subject:Conference.” Supported criteria keywords are:


  • from:
  • to:
  • cc:
  • bcc:
  • subject:
  • body:


Message List Filters


The drop-down menu next to the search box offers some pre-defined filters for quickly reducing the messages listed to their status priority.

The filter rules selected here are applied in addition to the search term entered in the search box. For example you can choose to only list unanswered messages from Paul by selecting the filter Unanswered and enter “from:Paul” in the search box.
