As a Jolla user, I can search by sender/subject/body text in mail folders.

EDIT: This one just needed a push up to front page (after over a year), looking at the answer and it's comments

EDIT: Latest update implements search although don't think it is at folder level. That is, when am searching Sent items it seems to fetch from other folders too. A problem when you have lot of mails and want to narrow down your results.

It would be nice if the search was extended server side, like it happens on Windows Phone 8 email client (if nothing is found on the phone you're prompted to search online).

Close this quetion and merge the request at Enhancements of the email client?

I don't think individual new enhancements should be bundled into one big enhancement request. That gives Jolla know proper guidance on what to prioritise and only messy ways to track what is done or not.

In addition to fixes to connection errors related to WiFi THIS ONE is something I really look forward in the 1.0.4.X release. When you have a lot of mails this is really needed to enable use of mail client. Needed when looking after certain mail to be answered or mail containing some important information (eg. ticket, address or similar)

I assume this topic is about search not being possible at all in the mail app, just different methods of sorting. Searchin email is an essential feature. I have a flat multi GB Inbox and without search capabilities the app is pretty much useless to me.

This is definitely a must-have for upcoming releases.

Still no email search after 1.04? This is a highly needed feature IMHO.

Was it Yoda, or Mr. Miyagi who said: "Don't think, Do!" 😄

Still no email search after 1.05 . Any estimate on future availability date of this feature? It is really must have with corporate google mail with possibility of 20GB mails...

I'd hope you think and act quickly. This is one of the reasons I consider almost daily changing back to my Lumia 820, until these certain daily annoyances have been fixed.
