I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for a long time and decided to try this eM Client. The features are very good and the presentation is extremely elegant. I am thinking of buying the full version. However, when I am trying to look for something, I find that the ‘Search’ function does not find what I want. I still have the Thunderbird client looking at the same Gmail IMAP server, and it always finds exactly what I am looking for every time. Am I missing a setting or is a full ‘search’ only available as a paid for feature?
Which version do you have? (curious)
The latest ‘free’ one downloaded a week r so ago. 6.0.x (I am on a different machine at the moment so can’t check the point number).
Perfect - then it is not the newest ! I am waiting for that one and it is said to have much better search functions!
I haven’t noticed any difference in the search functionality between 6 & 7. A couple of important notes:
- If you are searching message body, make sure ‘download messages for offlline use’ is turned on for the account you are attempting to search.
- Make sure to use the search keywords (e.g., text:, to:, etc.). Just entering a string does not produce the intended result. Entering ? in the search box will give you a list of the available keywords.
I have personally found that the search function works very well in emc.
OK - it is 6.024928.0 and I have just enabled the IMAP download for offline use for messages and attachments. That may well be the solution. Thanks everyone!
