Search for part of a word in mails

Is it possible to search for a part of a word in the mailbox? Say searching for 'clock' and then also getting results from 'clockwork' and 'clocks'?

I have exactly the same problem. I often search for parts of stuff that i remember but this does not work with mailbox.

The same here. Please add this feature. Searching partial words.

yes, same problem, its REALLY frustrating and quite a con compared to gmail. Also, it's extremely tiring to click "all folders" for every single search, as "inbox" is standard option, which I can't find out how to change the default on. So two requests:


- all-folders as standard for search!

- part of words activate searches (i'd add that parts of emails, too! (searching for onepercent doesn't give search hits on emails I've written with info@onepercentfortheplanet.org ...)

Yes, please! This is a critical thing to have.


PLEASE make it a priority to allow partial word searches (and also make "all folders" the default).

Hi, I would love to see this feature implemented as well! I use K-9 Mail on the phone for mailbox.org and the search logic of K-9 Mail takes this into account.

Please add this feature to the web version of Mailbox.org as well. You could also make a setting to let the user decide about this feature. Hope to hear a response back!
