I may have misunderstood how Thunderbird works, but when I press ctrl + shift + F, I must specify an account and a folder within it.

I want to be able to search all mail. Is there a plug in to do this?


No plugin necessary, Thunderbird comes with a global search built in.

The default shortcut for that is Ctrl - K (but I couldn't find the menu item to be honest).

You can put a "Global Search" input field into the toolbar.

See the Thunderbird help for details: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/global-search

  • Lolx! I have been using Ctrl+Shidt+F and had totally forgotten Ctrl+k A pity I can't search from/to/title. etc using that, not search with/out attachemnts or by date – Mawg says reinstate Monica Oct 10 '18 at 17:52
