Why isn’t the search function in eM Client working as expected?
Posted by Olivia Sadler on 04 August 2020 10:48

The release of eM Client 8 has brought enhanced search capabilities, including searching in the text of attachments and on IMAP and Exchange/Office365 servers. Sometimes though, searching through the mail server does not return correct/expected results, so it might be beneficial to turn off server search and search locally within eM Client instead.

To do this click on the down arrow v on the right side of the search bar and deselect Use server search if available. Also, while you’re in this search menu, double check that you’ve selected the correct search parameters, such as searching in All folders and searching for your keyword in the Subject, Sender, Recipients, Body and Attachments fields.
