User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: 126.96.36.199 1. Message field is "Sender" but search searches on "from" 2. Has trouble with search terms. I'm looking for mail from my boss named "Milopoulos". I search on From = "milo", nothing comes up. I search on From="milo*", nothing comes up. I have to search on From="milopoulos", ie, the whole word, to get a match. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. see above 2. 3. Actual Results: see above Expected Results: Netscape 4.78 (which I still have on an old machine at home) is a bit more forgiving. You either need to have a system that is more forgiving (translates any search string into "*string*" or give some rules on how to use wildcards in searches.
> 1. Message field is "Sender" but search searches on "from" Yes for thunderbird3, the column has been changed to From to avoid confusion with the "Sender" header. The star notation in search isn't supported (AFAIK). The "milo" search should match though. Is this a problem for other addresses too?

Created attachment 325183 [details] search.png I wish there is option for wildcard character and RegExp in every search. But most of our issues can be solved by current UI see attachment, it is from "version 3.0a2pre (2008060803)" if this solves your problem please mark the bug as WORKSFORME else let us know the issue. List of search conditions for "From" field are * contains * doesnt contains * is * isnt * begins with * ends with * is in my address book * isnt in my address book
