The problem here is that the "@" character is a special symbol in Find mode. And the solution is to escape it when you want to search for the actual "@" character - i.e. search for:

myemail\@email.com

Try putting it in quotes

That will work - but it is a very expensive solution, since searching for literal text does not use the index.

I did not know that.  How about if you script it via a Perform Quick Find?  It finds the email and you don't need the quotes, but does it use the index?

What would be the advantage of that? The disadvantage obviously being that all fields enabled for Quick Find would be searched.

I presume it does (or it wouldn't be quick).
