What's the problem with TB's searching ? I give you that the fact they have two search functionalities (one global, one in the currently examined folder) is quite confusing, but in my experience the local one at least works extremely well.

Also, Mozilla have recently released a new version of Thunderbird ("Thunderbird 5"). I'm playing with it currently. So far what I've noticed is that they finally use standard notifications on Linux. However, the settings are still a mess. Currently experimenting to see if the IMAP bugs have been fixed...

EDIT : No. When a message is in multiple folders and you delete it in one of them (typical example being the "unified folders" view, which I happen to like), it still remains visible in the left panel. =_= I wonder if Mozilla have such a thing as a bug reporting system for Thunderbird, though I doubt that they are not aware of this one.

I have two problems with thunderbird searching.

1) The search results cannot be correctly sorted by date. It does an alphanumeric search which can cause me to miss some items if I'm not thinking about its messed up sort.

2) Searching the body of a message also searches the contents of an attachment. Even binary attachments are searched. So sometimes I get a hit on a message, but the real search hit was in the strings table of the pdf or what not. Searching the contents of a text attachment might be nice, but that should be a separate search option.

Tried "local" search, or quick filters as TB calls it ? It does both of these perfectly well, although I can understand that it can be a bit of a bother if you have lots of mailboxes. Myself, I've given up on global search since I've discovered that, and now systematically disable it for interface cleanness and speed.
