There’s one bit of functionality I keep going back to Thunderbird for: the search.
Thunderbird has two top level boxes - Filter (which filters the contents of the current folder) and Search (which quickly searches all folders across all accounts for some text).
Creating a “Search Folder” for my query, finding the record, and then deleting the search folder again feels very cumbersome in comparison. So cumbersome that I find myself shutting eM Client, opening Thunderbird, doing a search, finding which folder I’ve left something in, and then opening eM Client again in preference.
Part of the problem is that only messages that have been downloaded get searched - and I haven’t yet worked out how to set all folders for offline use - so the search doesn’t work until I know which folder I’m searching in, and if I knew that, I’d be able to use the folder.
Is there a better way to search that I don’t know about yet?
How can I get it to download all the messages in all the folders so that search can be useful at all?
