Search Kmail for tagged email


I am a new Kmail user and I would much prefer to use a tagging structure similar to that which gmail uses instead of the folder approach. I did find that I was able to create tags in Kmail and to assign them to specific emails. Unfortunately, I cannot really find a use for it. I am not finding how I can search for those tags. When I go into 'Edit' > 'Search' I find no options available to choose tags.

Can someone tell me what I am missing or am I misunderstanding the use of tags in Kmail?

Thanks!

KDE4 design integrate something called nepomuk, a big metadata handling framework that every applications can use. It work great! Except for one thing, nobody wrote a decent GUI until now... You can learn the query syntax if you want and use dolphin/konqueror to browse your mail if you really want, or wait until akonadi+nepomuk will start to work well, it may take time.

Thanks for the reply. I do have a question though. If there is no way to search on tags yet, what are tags presently used for in Kmail?

If they are nepomuk tags, yes. You can use the KIO syntax in dolphin.

I'm not really sure what nepomuk tags are. I'm really referring to the tags that you would access by right clicking an email, choosing 'mark message' and then picking a tag. You can create your own tag by going to Settings > Configure Kmail > Appearance > Message Tags. I'm not really sure how those tags correspond to nepomuk. But if they are already existing in Kmail there had to be a way to utilize them. I guess that my question is, what is the purpose of the existing tags in Kmail and is there any way to run a search within Kmail based on them?

Thanks!
