It would help if you would give us concrete examples of what you're typing into the search bar, what email message you expected to see wasn't being listed, and where that text was located in the mail.  Remember, Geary does a prefix searching, meaning if you type "don" it will not match on "London", but if you type "Lon" it will.

Dear Robert,

Thank you very much for your answer.
So I really need IMAP-search.

But still, there is something strange.
One of my message cannot by found by the 'search' functionality.
I can see it in geary no problem, but I cannot find it using search.
I tried renaming geary.db but that does not help.
If I can do anything to track this bug, please let me know.

However, search does not work as I would expect it to work. If I search for "bug" in geary on my gmail account, I find only 3 messages. Some messages are obviously absent from the list. If I do the same directly in gmail, I find tens of messages. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug in geary?
Currently, Geary only searches mail in its database. By default, Geary will only download the last two weeks of mail for its database. (It doesn't remove mail from the database as it passes that mark, though.) You can adjust this setting through the Accounts dialog. So if you just started using Geary, I suspect the problem is that those other matching messages haven't been downloaded by Geary, and thus are unavailable for search. Adding IMAP search is an open bug: In the meantime, you could set Geary to download all mail from the server (or for the last several years), so search returns all the messages it should.
Should I remove my geary database? (BTW, where is it stored?)
The database is stored at ~/.local/share/geary/<address>/geary.db. I don't think this is a database problem, but if you want to test that, you can rename this file, and Geary will rebuild it. Robert
