    The iPad manual says you can search email body, but I've tried several times with no success. Does anyone know how to search email body text?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Yes the manual does say you can search the body of text but maybe that is only for certain mail, I've been trying and I can't get it to work, but then I just use the native mail app and it doesn't have that heading, just TO, FROM, SUBJECT and ALL Hopefully someone else will know more.

    In theory it's supposed to work by selecting All,and for any account type. I've only ever seen it work on older MobileMe addresses and on accounts hosted on Exchange 2003 and 2007.
