View Full Version : Mail Search Problem

18th March 2008, 11:26 AM
I am running Leopard on my G5 dual 2.3 PowerMac and am getting frustrated with Mail.

Every time I try to search in Mail (not spotlight) it comes up with no result. Eve for stuff where there are heaps of e-mails for it to lock onto.

My mail all remains in the inbox and the sent box - no other filing takes place. Has anyone else experienced this in Leopard? I am running all the latest updates.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sounds very odd!

Just double checked my own mail and it works perfectly. Can you answer these - it might help figure out what is wrong.

What term are you searching under? From, To, Subject or Entire Message?

Entire message. I am using it as I always have - it just is not working now.

Thanks Lutze.

The bad news seems to be that you are not the only one... and the worse news is that it seems to be incurable (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=6365885&#6365885) without a reinstall, at least currently!

What a pain - I am sure Apple will get on top of this eventually. It is not a deal breaker for me at the moment so I will just keep using it until Apple make a proper patch.

Thanks Lutze.
