How can we improve Airmail?

Have the search work more often. Half the time it simply doesn't work.

Better search.

        Guys, do something about this search. It makes Airmail unusable. As the other stated it take very long time to find anything if it ever find anything. Most of the time it just show infinite searching progeress...

        Airmail has many excellent features. However, I have to agree that the search is the one area where Airmail needs some improvement. Search can be quite slow, and often it misses items that I know are there, even recent items. Also, it would be much easier to search a folder if you could simply select the folder and then conduct a search, rather than using a search operator to identify the folder. I see the utility of the search operators, but for searching a folder (something that I do a hundred times a day), they are too time-consuming.

        I like airmail but it's search is so bad that I am often tempted to use Mail.
        Search performance has only worsened with Airmail 3 as the tags are gone.

        I have to flip back to native gmail to find things more often than not. Search flat out just doesn't work. MAJOR problem.

        There is another thread requesting "search within a folder".... I think this alone would go a long way in improving search results. Many of my results are irrelevant in the current state, at least having an ability to by default search the current folder would let us narrow in the scope of the query.

        +1. The search functionality is terrible. I'm considering ditching Airmail due to how bad the search is.

        Adding support for prefixing terms and autocomplete like gmail would be ideal.

        e.g.

        label:/path/to/label from:noreply@example.com text in email body
