    Awesome. I've searched and searched for this. Others say use e.g.
    date:>=8/1/2014
    but that does not work in my Outlook 2007

    Your dot-dot range DOES. High compliments.

    Thank you very much! I had my emails scattered across sub-folders but I wanted to get them in one view by received date.

    You have given wonderful idea. I can get the way I expect the emails to be.

    Much appreciated~!
