I sent a test message to an exchange account that I access through IMAP.

Refresh does not seem to do the trick.
Before I discovered sort, I did a search.
The test message was not in the result, but should have been.
Having done the seach, I can't seem to get out of it.
All I can see of my Inbox is the search result.
Quitting and restarting does not help.
How do I see the rest of my messages?
Why can't I refresh?

You don't say, but can we just check that you have cleared the search by
pressing the yellow brush (I think it's supposed to be??) icon at the
right hand end of the search box?

One reason that I want to refresh is that exchange
plays game with images "to protect your privacy".
In a lot of cases,
leaving out the images makes it hard to look at, much less read.
On the web interface, I got them back in for a useful fraction.
Now I would like to acess them through evolution.
If I get it working, will a standard refresh take care of that?
If not, what do I need to do?
I expect that deleting and reinstalling folders would do the trick,
but I was hoping for something less drastic.

Is there a way to handle the image problem just through evolution?

To load images that aren't embedded in the message do Ctrl-I or View ->
Load Images

There is also an option under Preferences -> Mail Preferences -> HTML
Messages about loading images (although it might be in a different place
in your version - you don't say which version of Evo you are using).

In general it is thought to be a "bad thing" to load all images in every
message - many spam mailers use these net images to monitor and harvest
addresses that are live: a small single pixel gif with a unique name
will immediately tell a spammer that the message that contained it was
delivered and read and hence went to a live address. This is just one of
the many ways images in emails can be used in naughty way - there are
many others.
