Very effective if you need to get back to certain conversations and you have hundreds of conversations in your Inbox.
AndyB has done went and it again. Creating yet another awesome addon so that conversations can be searched. Thank you sir!
While it may not work with Elastic Search, that doesn't matter to me in the least.(...since I'm on a shared server)

What matters to me is this add-on is a quick & convenient way for you & your users to search through various conversations for specific text. If it weren't for this handy add-on, here is how you would do such: YOU DON'T.(period)
Very useful, thank you Andy !
