You're right, I've been using the 'Web-like' mode. Either I'd forgotten, or more likely never knew, the other modes, so thanks for that. But... I still can't find the message I was looking for with either 'Simple' or 'Advanced.' To be more specific than in my OP, and following your pointers, I just tabbed into the 'Sent' folder, pressed Ctrl+F, and Message Finder came up with the 'Sent' sub-folder ticked and everything else unticked. I chose 'Simple' (search type). In the drop-downs I chose 'Recipient' and 'contains,' typed "map" (without quotes; part of the target e-mail recipient's address is onthemap)) in the unlabelled search text box, checked all boxes in the Advanced tab remained unticked, clicked Start, and got nothing. I did a few more similar tests; TB finds some strings readily, others it can't seem to see at all. Yet Quick Search works like a charm. -- Regards, Robert Bull mailto:theb...@theluminousvoid.plus.com Using The Bat! v6.2.4 on Windows Vista 6.0 Build 6002 Service Pack 2 ________________________________________________ Current version is 6.1.8 | 'Using TBUDL' information: http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/TBUDLInfo.html
