Hi all.

I don't know if anyone has posted this before, but I'd like to ask what about searching through e-mail body, besides the fields that already webmail has.

That function would be very interesting and useful, specially when using an operating system such as linux that has no email client such as OE6.

Had anyone asked or posted this before?

Best Regards.

Paul.

There have been several posts about it. As of now, body searching isn't available in webmail. Unless it's changed recently, IMAP search doesn't work properly either, unless you have a mail client that has the full contents (headers and bodies) of you mail store.

Hi Scott:

I'm talking only about WEBMAIL.

It's a pitty that we can't perform searches through email body.

Imagine someone that has a pc with no email client and only seeing email through webmail.

But that's OK.

I think Kerio may have this idea. Maybe they're working on this.

All we have to do is wait for that.

Regards.

If you look, I said WEBMAIL. Pointing out IMAP because people try to use that as a work-around, but it doesn't get around the issue.

They have had the idea for many years, but until now choose not to implement this.

Reason is the way Kerio stores all emails/contacts/tasks/etc: as individual files on the server. This compared to having a database, such as perhaps Exchange Server has. There are many benefits of having separate files, but one downside is searching is very ssslllooowww. The server would have to open, analyse and close the many thousands of files when body searching. Searching through a database with indexes is very much faster.

So: enabling something like body search in the current KMS could mean that many servers that are running perfectly fine now would just crumble under the search load. And searches would take pretty long. Can you imagine a user doing a search and then waiting patiently for a minute or two? I can't. My users would have closed Webmail already after 10 seconds thinking it was crashed. Those impatient bastards! Twisted Evil Cool

Hi winkelman;

I totally agree with you on that.

But Kerio has the tools to, at least, try doing sth like this.

All I say is that it would be a very nice tool for KMS WM, but I also understand the opposite (servers working slow, etc).

Yeah, in the end, I would have also closed the webmail thinking that it crashed when no results comes to my screen!!!!

Thanks for the responses.
