Lion Mail search for messages from a specific domain System 10.7
In previous versions of OS X, you used to be able to quickly search for messages from a given domain just by typing it in on the search field. On Lion, this is a pain, because Mail tries to guess the actual sender a never lets you look at all the messages.

As a workaround, if you type "from:@domain" you will see messages from all email addresses from that domain. You can also use "to:@domain" to look for the messages that were sent to an email address at a given domain.

Lion Mail search for messages from a specific domain

Great tip on adding the @ to the domain to limit what is matched, but if I type "domain" followed by "return" I get all messages that have the domain in it whether from:, to: or in the body. It doesn't seem to limit what I see, rather it expands the search.
