Assume that you use Microsoft Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013 in the Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1) environment, and you set Outlook into online mode. In this situation, when you search in the Send To field in Advanced Find against the Sent Items folder, no result is returned.
To search in the Send To field in Advanced Find against the Sent Items folder, follow these steps:
Select the Sent Items folder, and then select the search box. On the Search Tools tab, select Advanced Find, enter the full name of a person in the Sent To textbox field, and then select Find Now.
Note If you select a user from the global address list (GAL), the search works.
This issue occurs because Exchange Server 2013 store translates the recipient sub-restriction into a SearchCriteriaFalse value that leads to an always false criteria.
