I'm not sure whether this is an issue with my hosting company email server or SeaMonkey.

I'm using the Advanced dialog for Search Messages with parameters:

Search for messages in [email folder] "Search subfolders" checked on
Perform search operations on [Remote Server]
"Match all of the following" selected
Search criteria:
Date is after 8/16/2017
Date is before 8/21/2017

The search results in 1562 messages with dates beginning 1/9/2001 and ending 8/19/2017. It's not at all clear what criteria was used for selecting this set of emails.

If I change to
Perform search operations on [Local system}

the result is four messages all of which meet the search parameters.

It has been a while since I've done this specific type of search but I'm fairly certain it used to work. The email server is Yahoo/ATT, which gives one pause right there...!

Update 8/24: I installed Thunderbird and search by date gives the same results for Local System and On Server. Can anyone confirm?
