How can we improve Airmail?

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 to show up. This is how all of google search works so I admit my UX bias to expecting that here.

I've attached two files: one is "good" and the results I'm looking for. One is "bad" and shows the default behavior.

    Wow, I didn't even know you could hit return to add multiple terms to your search. This is not intuitive at all. I'm used to search boxes that will interpret "this that" as a search for "this" AND "that", but it seems that Airmail will default to searching for the exact string "this that". I'm pleased to discover that it is possible to have multiple search terms but this feature may be completely lost on others like me who thought the search box should understand this intuitively.
