    Make search work as the search options suggest:
    Search all mailboxes needs to search all mailboxes of all accounts. Same for all outlook items, which needs to go into all subfolders - can we have a search all folders for the email that searches over all accounts.
    It is frustrating to have to repeat the search over each account. Otherwise, I might as well use a different email program for each account I have... This seems like a basic, normal expectation for feature/behaviour to have. I can barely believe that this is not covered.
    (Do you do usability studies?!?)
