Background: I imported all of my old emails into my iCloud account since I want to ditch the old one. I had no problem dragging and dropping between the two accounts while set up in Outlook, and all the mesages now show up just fine on (Total imported ~1.2Gb)


Problem: Then I noticed, whenever I did any search for any emails that had been imported, I get 0 results no matter what. I was hoping that needed to "index" the emails or something and eventually the search would work, but it has been 2 weeks and still no ability to search the vast majority of my library of emails. When I search for stuff that came in within the past 2 weeks (since the import), it works perfectly. I have tried a couple times shuffling the messages between Archive / Inbox folder to see if doing so will get the search to pick them up - no luck.


I know a lot of people must have switched from gmail or others and did a similar import - can you please report if the search did / did not work on your imported messages? Thanks!
