    In the past, I have searched my inbox in Mail and it has worked fine. Now it is not working for some reason.

    I followed the steps in the application's help article (including rebuilding the Mailbox and making sure that in the advanced settings specify caching all IMAP messages) and none of these steps has worked.

    As an example, I'm searching for a word that appears in the subject line of many messages in the inbox and I'm getting 0 results. Obviously this search is erroring. As I said, this same search used to work fine.

    Note that I am using the search bar that appears in the upper right hand corner of Mail.

    Can anybody help?

    Got It

    I am an idiot. I just saw the bar below that has the buttons for "From" , "To" , "Subject" , etc...

    If I highlight the subject one, my search example that I gave works fine.

    Sorry all!
