Q: What happens to all of the messages in my inbox and sent folder at the end of the year?
A: Messages from the previous school year are moved to the Historical Archive towards the end of Summer. There is an archive folder for each school year.
Q: Do messages I placed in custom folders get archived?
A: No. Messages in custom folders remain in the custom folders. The only Inbox, Sent, and Current Archive messages are moved to the Historical Archives.
Q: How do I search my inbox?
A: If you need to search your inbox, you can sort the columns by date, sender, or subject by clicking the column header. Click the header a second time to sort again in the reverse order. You can also search your inbox by using the Lookup tool; just start typing into the text field at the top of your inbox and LoopMail searches for matches and populates a list of results on the fly. You can enter dates such as "3/3" or any part of the sender's name or message subject. If you want to get fancy, use the plus sign for an advanced search such as "3/3 + Wilbur."
Note: The Lookup tool only works on one mailbox at a time. In other words, searching your inbox won't show results from your sent messages. Also, the search does not work on the contents of messages, only the date, title, and sender/recipient(s).
