I’ve been using Nextcloud for the last year, self hosted, and I love it. It’s mostly been rock-solid. I’m looking forward to upgrading to Nextcloud Hub, but before I do, I’d like to understand and fix a glitch with IMAP4 search in the mail client.
I’m connecting to a standard 3GB IMAP4 mailbox at gandi.net. The mail client has been working quite well for me for casual email interaction, but recently (can’t say when exactly) email search has stopped working. I enter a string on which I want to filter, see the current message body replaced with a spinner, and then the same list of emails is displayed, unfiltered.
There’s nothing in the nextcloud log on the server, and looking in Firefox dev tools, I see the response to (for example
https://<myFQDN>/apps/mail/api/accounts/2/folders/SU5CT1g%3D/messages?filter=nextcloud) returns a
HTTP 200 OK and a JSON body that contains twenty records that don’t match the filter.
Do you have any suggestions of where to look next?
Thanks and regards
