    Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

    I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

    When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

    Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....


    .....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.

    Windows live mail not searching message contents

    I have been having the same trouble, which was just noticed...
    Windows Live Mail does not search "contents" of messages anymore... just searches names and message subject line.
    Hope to find an answer as I hate to switch to another mail client, but I absolutly need the search functionality.
