Hi, Alec.

Thanks for your reply. But there is something wrong in 0.1.1.

I used 'bod:search text' as search string, it seems roundcube found it, 
but it didn't list the result. Please check the attached image.
If i use 'search text' as search string, it will list all matched mails.

One more suggestion: Create a <select> tag in search field, so user can 
choose which part of email to search, like: from, to, cc, body, etc. I 
think this improvement will make roundcube more user friendly, because 
nobody know this tip ('body:TEXT').

Thanks for your hard work. :)

Best regards.
