My comments related to Abzilla and its address book search features (Also applies to mozilla message search):

The developpers constantly miss a usuability issue here. The default search option selected should be "Search all headers and message body" for "keyword" and find all messages that partially matches this keyword. "Search all headers and message body" is not even an option currently??? That is ridiculous.

With my other email program Calypso (doesn't have IMAP support unfortunately), that is the default and it works great. There are cases once in a 100 searches that return too many results, but you can always fine tune the search if that is the case. Similarly for addresses. The default should be search all fields in the address book for a keyword and find partial matches....
