I have noted a number of conversations regarding syncing ALL MAIL from the GMail account. For reasons stated (ALL MAIL is a superset of GMail labels) this is not practical.

However, the reason for wanting access to ALL MAIL is usually to search for old emails. Is there any facility to conduct a server side search, not of the Collaboration Server but of the GMail server? To be clear, what I mean is the ability to search the GMail server for messages rather than the locally downloaded store.

If this does not exist then I will raise it on Bugzilla but I want to be sure that the functionality doesn't exist first. If any experienced users can let me know if the functionality already exists but I'm just missing it, please advise. Thanks.
