Hi Rodrigo,

Search in WL is tricky. Here is my understanding. wl-summary-pick and
filter folders (those that start with `/` and can be created with V in
the Folders buffer) either use the IMAP search feature *or* if
non-IMAP or offline will use the elmo database. These can work against
a given folder or collection of folders.

Search folders (those that start with `[`) use external search
programs (namazu, mairix, mu, etc.) The send a query to the search
engine and display to the user the results. It is up to the search
engine which folders or index to search. mu, for instance, appears to
support a maildir field, so it would be possible to ask mu to search a
given maildir. But WL窶冱 interaction with the search engine is to send
a search string and nothing more. WL does not request the search
engine to search against a given folder.

To some up, filter folders and pick search in a given folder(s), while
search folders send a request to an index, but not generally a request
to search in a given folder.

I myself use filter folders and dovecot窶冱 search capabilities, which
work well enough for my needs.

Hope that helps!

best, Erik
