Google Contacts Search in eM Client including Names with german characters ö, ä, ü (Umlaute)

We are a small business from germany and just switched to eM Client due to it’s advanced support of the googlemail services (including caldav / carddav).

As you might know some german names include Umlaute and special german Characters: ö, ä, ü, Ö, Ä, Ü, ß — in germany we have family names like Müller, Schöner.

While using our google contacs in eM Client we realized that the search function has trouble searching for names with Umlaut names.

For instance if you search for “Schöner” and you search for “Sch” it will show Schöner in the results, as soon as you type “Schö” no results will show up at all.

What can you or we do about it?
