Finding emails from someone when unsure if they are the "Sender" or a "Recipient"

One of the easiest ways to locate an email is by searching using the sender's name. The search can turn into a nightmare however if you are unsure of the sender's name.

For example, let's say you are looking for a contract document that you know involved your colleague, "Sullivan". Trouble is, you don't remember if Sullivan sent the document or if he was one of the recipients (besides you), that the document was sent to.

Searching with the name "Sullivan" in the "Sender" field yields zero results.
