So Mozilla shows every mail which occasionaly contains the string as chipher text, but not the mails which contain the string in the decrypted form (aka. plaintext). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. email acount which contains enctrypted mails 2. Tools->Search Messages. 3. Search for a string in the message body(s) (e.g. Body contains "world") Actual Results: Mozilla will report some messages, but when you read them the String "world" will not be contained in thes messages as plain text. Expected Results: Mozilla should only report these mails which contain the string (e.g. "world") in the plain text Mozilla shows this behavior in serval Versions and Projects Thunderbird/Seamonky/Mozilla Suite over the last years.
Similar to bug 132340.

If the message is encrypted, the fact that we can now (on Trunk at least) search base64 content and look somewhat deeper in a multipart tree won't help us, since we would need to actually hook body search up to libmime to get the correct output parsing. So this is still valid.

This continues to be a serious problem in 2.0.23 for Thunderbird users who use encrypted mail. It means that Edit Find SearchMessages does not work as specified. Nor does Thunderbird give any feedback. [Body] [contains] simply reports no matches found. Since this is assigned to nobody, will the behavior be the same in 3.0?
The behavior is the same in 3.0. It's not fun using an e-mail reader that does not have the ability to search the body of messages.
