The all-new search engine is much more efficient and enhanced than the old one now. It includes the online search feature (searching for the results on the server database even if the database/messages are not stored on Airmail locally).
The new search also allows you to use the Gmail Advanced Search Operators of which you can find a reference from this link:
(Please note that fully supported Google Advanced Search Operators are ONLY available for Gmail accounts.)
Some examples of the searches are as follows:
- Searching “to:paul” will result in a message list, in which all the messages will be included, which contains “paul” in the ‘To:’ field.
- Searching “from:paul” will result in a message list, in which all the messages will be included, which contains “paul” in the ‘From:’ field.
- Searching “to:paul or to:steve” will result in a message list, in which all the messages will be included, which contain either “paul” or “steve” in the “To:” field.
Please note that you can also search using complete email address in the search bar - “to:firstname.lastname@example.org”
— You can search the messages by content also. Just type in the part of the content in the search field. For example: searching “let us meet this weekend” will result in a message list, which has all the messages that contain ‘let us meet this weekend’.
