Thanks for your answer.

I actually tried that as a guess; and tried it again now. Nothing happens if I do that; and I waited 30s just in case. It also doesn't show "No messages matched" or anything similar like it does when selecting a folder to search in. I tried rebuilding the folder tree, too.

So can you confirm again that this works for you? I wonder what the difference might be. My mailbox is MH-style like yours, i.e. it shows as "mail (MH)" referring to my ~/mail/ folder.

Thanks for your help in any case!
