Hi there,


I'm using Outlook on my MBA and was wondering if there is anyway to exclude emails from the file types that Finer uses when looking at all of your files?


At the moment when I am looking for certain files I find myself having to scroll endlessly to get past the individual email messages/files that Finder throws up.

    I don't know how to do what you want. ALL your files are ALL your files.

    There are built in searches that you can qualify like command-f.

    I find Easy Find very easy, nothing to learn.

    You could use View>Arrange By to arrnage by something other than Kind.


    For example sorting by Date Last Opened might help to get your results in a more relevant order.
