change search default from "in:" to "under:"?

Postby trevorp » Wed Oct 18, 2017 8:06 pm

Is there anyway to change the search default from "in:" to "under:"?

Almost every single one of our users don't know which folder an item is actually "in", but they do know that it is "under" their Inbox, or some other folder structure. Can the default be changed to search the current and all subfolders, instead of just the current folder?

I think I found it... Figures.. minutes after posting the question..
Under Preferences, Mail, Displaying Messages. Look for Default Mail Search. Change in:inbox to under:inbox

Is there a way to change this globally for all users?

Set zimbraPrefMailInitialSearch on the user's cos(s).

Thanks. That helps.

Is there a way to change the default going forward from "in:" to "under:" for all future searches?

Anyone got this to work or know how to do this?
Change all future search defaults from "in:" to "under:" would solve a lot of my user issues.
