The manual is clear. The command Efficiently retrieves transaction events matching the transaction type transaction-name that contain the text selected by search-string.
The example bellow, will Find all email transactions to root from David Smith.

| searchtxn email to=root from="David Smith"

If you still have problems, let me get your query
