Its possible thats what Rob means, but IMAP e-mail bodies will not be
indexed unless their contents are downloaded, and its a problem we are

Could you give us some specific examples of queries that don't work? And
if you could include the version of beagle that would be great, this
might be a bug, but I wanna be sure that we are on the same page with

This would most defiantly be a daemon issue, or a problem with our query
parsing. (Which, strictly speaking is part of neither the UI or daemon,
but tends to be more of a backend thing).
