Default Outlook 16 - search by # of words in message?

Anyone clever enough to have a hint on how to do this?

I think I have probably 1,000 or so sent message where all I said was some variant of "thank you" but I don't want to sift through all my sent messages (or search by thank you or thanks because those come up too often in messages with actual content).

So I figure if I can search by messages with fewer than say 10 words that might do the trick....
The universe is a cruel uncaring void, the key to being happy isn't the search for meaning, it's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense and eventually, you'll be dead.

Don't know how to do word count, but could you sort by size and then do the search?

I've used Python to do word counts in e-mails.

See for a start.
