Am I missing something, or am I only able to search mail based on one parameter - i.e. I can search from a certain person, but I want to search messages from a certain person with a certain word in the message.

Thanks

Just tested it using the normal search function in mail and it works fine.
tried it with 3 separate words.

I don't know if mail can be re-indexed, so a more knowledgeable member will need to tune in.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

The normal search function I have only allows to search either for content in the message, From, To, subject. I can't search for from "Mark" with "invoice" in the message body.

Am I missing something?
