How do a global search on Evolution???


I've been using linux for over 10 years and Evolution for almost that long. But I still can't quickly do a global search with some arbitrary keyword. (and unix for MUCH longer).

I ususally just give up and do a recursive grep in the raw mbox directories.

Why is it so hard to do this from Evolution? Its a nuisance to create a "search" and a "Search Folder" that contains only that single search...which will never get used again.

I just want a quickie dialog box into which I type an alphameric.

What am I missing?

What am I missing here?

You haven't tried Search->Advanced Search?

You're talking about Evolution GUI interface?
