      Search does not work half the time, and when it does it is extremely slow. I love Airmail, but if this feature is not improved I will have to move to a different client.

        • Better, faster search. Your poor search has led me to start looking elsewhere for an email client...

          Add an advanced search capability--and improve search speed/integrity

          • Advanced Search in Airmail is SERIOUSLY lacking. Several critical issues that need to be addressed

            1-The search bar needs enough space to have at LEAST 3 or 4 arguments,... currently can only do 1!,.. maybe 2 if they are short. Possibly a separate dropdown menu for this would help.

            2-We need Exclusive results!,.. If I want to search for email that I sent to a contact and ONLY that contact I currently can't do that. The results that come up shows that same person even if others are involved!!!

            3-We need Exclusive results again!... If i want to search emails whose subject starts with "C " (that's the letter C then space) i can't do…

            • Sort by search relevance

              As someone who bases a lot on his email organization on powerful search, being able to sort the search by relevance is really important when you have thousands and thousands of emails.

              Also, this would be a great improvement over what GMail offers. Thunderbird (and thus Postbox) has this.

              • search for more than one word at a time without a return

                If I put two words into the search box, I get no results. I can only use more than one word in a search if i hit return between the two words.

                Example: [Kayla invoice] has no results (neither does [invoice kayla])

                But, if I type invoice (hit return) and then kayla(hit return)

                I get the proper results. I think it's fine to add the modifier option drop down after the search just in case I want to designate Kayla as the sender, for example. But assume if I enter two words in the search box I want them both…

                • Search e-mail receiver in the Sent folder when clicking "bulls eye"

                  When I am in the Sent-folder and have a mail selected and click the Bulls eye-icon on top, I want Airmail to search all e-mail sent to that receiver. Today Airmail gives me all mail that I have sent, which is useless, since I usually have sent all the mail in the Sent-folder.

                  As it is now the Bulls eye-icon is useless in the Sent-folder.

                  • Make the MOVE search bar search all text in label

                    When I press V to move the selected mail to a label, there is a search box that pops up, which is extremely helpful. But it only search if you type in the exact name in chronological order.

                    If I had a label called "3233 Job Name" it would be great if I could type in "Job" and it would show up. Right now I have to type in "3233 Jo..." to see it.

                    • Remove trash from search results

                      The google option in:trash does not work in conjunction with another parameter. They show up in inbox but the message doesn't display if it is also in trash. My preferences do not select to see trash in search results.

                      • Search fixed when unread flag is on

                        When you try to search when you have "Sort by Unread" on, the results are in backwards order or something. In whichever way the results appear, it does not seem purposeful. It would be helpful if it was same as "Sort By Date", except maybe showing the unread items first.

                        • Just a small issue about label - when you select a message and if the label starts with a number, you can't find a part of label with alpha

                          Just a small issue about label - when you have selected a message (after using the shortcut - right arrow for exemple of a or "L" letter ) and if the label starts with a number (0- dummy), it's not possible to find a part of label by entering alpha text like the real search function of label in the left pannel. Is it possible to correct that ?

                          • Updated search functionality went backwards

                            Since updating the app to version 3 I'm no longer able to inuitively search. I usually search for a specific word in an email and then either a sender, or folder. Since updating I seem to be able to search only one of those things. Either a sender or a label. But if I search for multiple terms there's no option to also search in a certain label.

                            What happened!?

                            • Clear search with single click

                              When search field is deselected, in order to clear search criteria, it requires two clicks, once to select search field, second to click on X to clear query. Would be great if this were a single click.
