Been using Apple products for 20 years and iOS since it first came out, on the iPhone 5 now.
I don't understand one thing:
I have 4 email accounts (all IMAP) on my i5 with over 20,000 messages "total" on "the server" how is that the phone can NEVER find anything when doing a search "on the server"
I see them on "the server" (via my Mail app on OS X or the web client) but the phone never finds anything?
Anyone else thing Search in Mail on iOS is absolutely terrible... Was so easy to find message on a Blackberry and this phone is so inept when it comes to email... Not flaming, not angry, just discussing.
What's the deal with searching for messages on this thing...

The few times I've needed to search for something in my Gmail account on my iPhone, it's managed to find things no problem. I do, however, ensure to search with the 'All' tab highlighted as opposed to From, To, Subject..

It sounds like, as Raz0r has noted, you aren't searching all areas. Make sure to select that when you search:
Also make sure you're looking at all of your inboxes and not just one.
