Searching Messages

Make sure you're able to handle multiple SEARCH replies returning messages non-ordered:

1 UID SEARCH ALL
* SEARCH 5 2
* SEARCH 1 6
1 OK

When searching non-ASCII text, you'll have to specify CHARSET parameter. There is no way to list supported charsets, but you do get a [BADCHARSET] tag if the used charset isn't supported. So you can only guess. UTF-8 should be supported by all servers nowadays, and there probably isn't much point in trying to guess any others.

8bit parameters must be sent only using literals:

1 SEARCH CHARSET UTF-8 TEXT "pää"
1 BAD 8bit text in quoted string.

2 SEARCH CHARSET UTF-8 TEXT {5}
+ OK
pää
* SEARCH 3
2 OK
