    When viewing a single email or an entire thread, it would be incredibly helpful to have an option to perform a search within that email/thread. This exists in the full client and it exists in browsers via a "Find in page" option. This would allow one to quickly find the word/phrase they're seeking in any given message.

    when I search for an event in calendar I can't find it because search results show everything from the emails with the same name

    when searching for anything in an email I want it to show even if it is in the body of the email

    Mails are either searched with a keyword or person predominantly. current search results do not result in throwing up the mails by descending order of date and all related mails but it picks at random a few over a larger period of time this user unable to find what he wants to find.

    1) just give me the true inbox. 2) give me access to the search folders I set up in the desktop version (or let me add similar ones here. honestly, I have been a avid email user for 30 years, and I cannot use this app for email. a truly bad experience where I never see the email I want

    Be able to search for emails and then highlight and select the emails that you searched and either move to a folder or delete them

    I'm unable to search my mail by name and/or topic. I have to scroll through all the mail to find what I'm looking for. This only happens on my phone app not my laptop application. On my laptop I can enter in the search bar at the top when I am looking for in a will bring up all those messages. However on my phone I have I cannot do that.

    Having the option to search for a folder name to find the right folder to which I want to move a message.

    Allow searching for emails from source mail server (gmail, yahoomail etc) over large extended time periods. Currently search for emails from sender is over a few prior months only. Could you please extend this over the entire history (from the day the email address was created).
