The search box at the upper left-hand corner of your main tree-mail page will search only your tree-mails, Hetty.

I agree

And while on the topic here, Trish has been asking me to revisit the whole search engine strategy for ATP. It's never clear and obvious how to limit your search to a specific area (go to that area first, then use the search.)

She's given me some ideas of ways to make this more intuitive (and perhaps more powerful) and it's on my TODO. I made the search when ATP was brand new and there wasn't a million things to search for. Search now deals with millions of items and it's time to make it more flexible for the user to find what they want easier.
