I just downloaded 32 bit trial, and cannot find Options screen contents shown above. My options only shows "Show number of items".
I need to search email for exactly Body:".AB". There are thousands of "AB", I know there are 2 ".AB" that I need to find.

FYI shows 45 days and 60 days for trial period.
