From: "freshmeat.net" <email@example.com> 2. From: freshmeat.net <firstname.lastname@example.org> 3. From: "Raoul \"Maharaja\" Bhatia" <email@example.com> thunderbird displays these 3 messages the following way. (from memory, not verified using *this* very examples): 1. freshmeat.net 2. freshmeat.net 3. Raoul "Maharaja" Bhatia searching for (no matter if using quick-search or the dedicated search window): a. searching for the char " gives 1. and 3. as a result b. searching for the two chars \" gives 3. as a result i would normally expect, that the search is consistent with the data displayed in the columns. this a. should return 3., and b. should return *nothing* Reproducible: Always
Raoul how do you like the new search regarding this issue (the one that is in Thunderbird 3.0b4) ? Does it makes searching easier ?
