    With the latest mail in Lion, how is it possible to search so results include the senders e-mail address?

    For example, if I search for "john" (looking for mails that john sent me) the results only show "Message contains 'john'" and nothing from mail addresses that have "john" in them.

    Maybe I just can't see the wood for the forest.......

    When you type John, a dropdown list should appear with names under a section called "people." That is what you want to click on, as it will show up as the "from" search paramater in the search bar.
