    Wishlist: Search Tool

    Could you integrate a search tool that allows to search just within a folder and displays only the messages that match the query within the folder?

    You might as well describe it.  I'm not going to install Thunderbird just to find out what you like about it's search function.

    I hadn't looked at it before. I just did. It looks not be as powerful as Pegasus's -- no sign that it can search by regular expression, for example.

     

    I take it that when the OP said "displays only the messages that match the query within the folder"  he meant that literally -- not "searches" but "displays". It's like a filtered view on the folder. You can activate a function to save the search in a folder. I don't know whether that's a "smart mailbox" like the Mac's Mail.app has, but there's nothing to say so, so perhaps not. However that may be, saving the search as a folder is an option not the default.

     

    I suspect what the OP is asking for is what one might call filtered views onto a selected folder -- filtered through a search-term that is.

    Re: Wishlist: Search Tool

    when searching in one or more folders the result is found in a search result folder - isn´t that exactly the same function ?
