Ho do I capture packets from single ip address. I typed in the filter. Then sent emails from this address. No packets showed up

What is your capture setup - wired or wireless?
Have you verified that you can see packets from that source?

How did you send emails? Note the filter you have given is a display filter, not a capture filter. Regardless, you have to be able to capture the traffic you want without any filtering before you can apply a filter to restrict what is captured\displayed.

Are you sending the emails from the machine running Wireshark or not?

If not, what type of network are the two machines on - Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or something else?
