Please give me back search - otherwise I will need to change my provider!

I am no longer able to search my emails - is there a fix planned for this, it's basic functionality, I have put up with a lot of nonsense from virgin mail but this is the one that will make me change my provider and notify all my contacts of my new address and why i've moved

Re: Please give me back search - otherwise I will need to change my provider!

That'll have VM trembling in their boots and rushing to re-code the off-the-shelf e-mail interface they use just to keep you on side - seriously I think not!

This was discussed extensively when the web mail interface was introduced. VM are aware there is a demand for a more comprehensive search function but a year later it is what it is. And there are much more important issues that they need to address - like the mediocre spam filtering.

I wouldn't hold your breath.

Guidance on how to use the functionality that there is, is here:

Please don't send me private messages unless I ask you to.
I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

Find an independent email provider more appropriate to your needs or use an email client with IMAP, for example, Thunderbird.

AFAIK, cross-folder searching is an installation and configuration task with no coding involved.
