The one thing holding me back from regularly using my email address over my account is search.

I'm using Thunderbird as my email client and I regularly can't find old emails I know I archived.

Does anyone have suggestions or resources on improving email search in TB or have an alternative email client they prefer that does this well?

@clayton When moving away from gmail, fastmail works well.

@clayton To improve thunderbird search, I have found it's helpful to put effort into sorting, folders, and tagging, automatically saving addresses in the address books and other such personal archiving techniques, instead of relying on advertizing-focused algorhythms to index correspondance.

@clayton Riseup is a particularly security-focused service, so I would hope its indexing would include some limitations.
