Despite Email being the most popular communication medium currently in use and that people have been shown to regularly re-use messages, very little is known about how people actually search within email clients. In this paper we present a detailed analysis of email search behaviour obtained from a study of 47 users. We uncover a number of behavioral patterns that contrast with those previously observed in web search. From our findings, we describe ways in which email search could be improved and conclude with a short discussion of possible future work.
