    Whenever I try and search for a message on iCloud.com from another computer or even my iOS devices, I get either an error (on iCloud.com) or the search takes forever (iOS devices) and never find what I'm search for because it takes too long. I run a business and use iCloud as my primary email address and when I first got it (MobileMe era) it was used for everything including website signups so I have lots of spam that I haven't yet sorted out.

    Compared to gMail, it's plain horrid.

    Am I the only one? The only way I can search my email is from Mail on Mac. To me, it shouldn't be like this anymore (MobileMe).

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    It is pretty bad. Search is pretty darn good on a Mac (it's "Gmail like" since it's fully indexed), and can search content of messages, but on the web and in iOS is painful. Very painful. I use iCloud for push, but I dread if I ever need to find anything, because I'd have to know which folder to look in. So for that, I forward all iCloud to Gmail for my true repository.
