When looking for a message from someone specific (either by name or e-mail address), the global search is often useless… It returns a whole list of all e-mails related to this person, i.e. messages that were sent by or to this person, but also messages that mentions this person in one way or another. The various filters from the global search do not seem to allow for this either.

What I really want is to search messages that were sent by this person (or alternatively that I sent specifically to this person) without having to look into specific folders one by one with the quick filter toolbar, or go with the advanced search.

Or in other words: if the quick filter could be used not only for a subfolder, but - optionally - for a folder AND all its subfolders ...

This feature that was so useful in the old TBird seems to have gone AWOL. I found a possible alternative in Add-ons - search for 'Search.'
