    Hi,

    I am having this problem with Mail, which has just started happening recently.

    Whenever I search for e-mails using its built in search function a lot of the times very few or no results come up.

    For example, when I search for e-mail I receive from my domain name registrar I only get 1 or 2 results but I know I have at least 20-30 e-mails from them in my Inbox (which I can locate manually).

    Each of those e-mails has the name of the registrar in them so I am wondering why only a few results come up.

    This also happens when I look for e-mails from other people and companies. A lot of times 0 results come up even though I am able to manually find the e-mails that contain the words I was searching for.

    I have about 1,000 e-mails in my inbox so using search is a must in order for me to be able to find what I am looking for quickly so I don't have to manually go through them.

    Anyone have this issue or any ideas on how to resolve it?
