    I've noticed this also. Sometimes the search "all" does not work but when I find the message other ways the text I was searching for was clearly there.

    For some reason search all is the same as it was on iOS 4 despite apple sites claims otherwise. Smh

    Are those emails stored locally on the phone or on a server someplace else? Maybe that's the issue - it can't search emails not actually "on" the iphone. Just guessing...

    No, it can't search the body of anything. And I remember Forstall saying you could search your phone and the server.

    I hope it's just a bug, I was really looking forward to this feature.

    That would suck. Sure it's a bug.
