    Hello all, is the above possible in iOS5? i upgraded today and dont see anything new in terms of searching for text in the email.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Ok i believe you, but how? :)

    You can't

    You are supposed to go under all and be able to search the body of an email. For some reason it has been omitted (forgotten).

    Actually it does work but not always. Still don't know why. I can sometimes find text in the email body from spotlight or inbox search. For me it works about 60% of the time. I guess it's a start but very disappointing.

    No it doesn't work at all. What u r searching must also be in the subject so that is why u are mistaken.

    I know exactly what I'm looking for and it does work! The text is in the body of the email and NOT the subject. Keep trying bc it does work, only not 100% of the time.
