Takis, in answer to your question, yes, the idea is to press all three. Why it 
doesn't work for you is a mystery. Fortunately, it's a mystery you don't need 
to solve because Nathaniel's F4 method works very nicely and requires pressing 
just one key. I learned something, too. To be honest, it's more that I 
re-learned something because déjà vu tells me this suggestion has been made 
before.

Hi Adrian,
But I pressed all three of them simultaneously and got that message. Should I 
have pressed control at some other point_ Anyway, what Nathanael suggested 
worked marvels and is very straightforward.
                        T       hanks to both of you,
                Takis

You got what you'd expect to hear from JAWS key+f, which is font and point 
size. You can confirm by pressing JAWS key+1 (on the number row above the 
letters), which tells you what each keystroke does when JAWS is in a specific 
application. Adding control to this combination while you're inside an email 
message should enable you to perform a search of that message's content.

Hi all,
Out of curiosity, with jaws 18 and outlook 2007, I tried insert-cntrl-f and 
what I get is "point black on white mix font." So, it did not work for me 
either and I would be interested for any suggestions.
                                Greetings from Euboea,

        Dear Adrian Spratt:
Thanks for your reply.  I will try both of those hot keys for the Find command 
for Outlook.  Regards:  Ted Larson

Hi, Ted. Welcome to JAWS!

To search within an open message, add the JAWS key to control-f. this three-key 
combination comes in useful in many common applications even when control-f 
also works.

To search through the messages in a folder, place focus at one of the folder's 
messages and press shift-control-f. this is a Microsoft command. An alternative 
is to press control-e, another MS command.

Dear List:

I just migrated from window-eyes to jaws.  I know that the jaws Find command is 
control-F.  However, in outlook, the control-F is the Forward command.
What procedure do I use to find text in Outlook?  Do I use some sort of bypass 
or override hot key?  Thanks.  Regards:  Ted Larson
