    Default Mail App with Server Side Search

    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for a mail app with a unified inbox (gmail and yahoo) that can also search the mail servers and not just the phone. K9 seems to be pretty popular but it doesn't have this feature.

    I don't believe any of the standards (IMAP or POP3) provide for a search capability.

    I know Gmail provides extensions to the standard IMAP API that include a "search" command. Yahoo's uses a Web Service to provide access that provides a search capability.

    You would be limited to gmail/yahoo unless other providers also implement extensions.

    Gool luck with your search for a email client.

    Exchange (ActiveSync) does... and it seems that iOS supports it but Android Email doesn't.
