How do I search for a specific word, eg. moode and not mood?

Paskelbta

As above. I have tried adding quotes to the word ie. "moode" and adding a minus sign -moode (nb. which both work in Google) but I keep getting mood included in the search results. Any help would be appreciated. Mark.

I'm using Windows 10 and TB version 60.6.1

I did a search on the word youuuu as this may show up 'you' as well - testing your senario.

When I search in Global Search for: youuuu or "youuuu", and select 'messages mentioning youuuu, I only get the four expected results.

This is also the case if I do this in Quick Filter Bar and then filter by Body.

I also checked in Find > Search messages, to search Body contains youuuu with same results.

What version of Thunderbird are you using? Which method of search are you using?

I don't think there's a one-click way to search for specific strings that excludes words that contain the string. If you search for youuuuu, it won't list you in the results, but if you search for you from Edit/Find/Search Messages... (Ctrl+Search+F), or Search Messages from the folder right-click menu, it will display youuuuu, youuu, your etc. You can add a filter rule to exclude words, e.g. Body + contains + mood and Body + doesn't contain + moode will find instances of mood but exclude ones with moode.

Global search works somewhat differently, in that it performs a 'faceted search', which also produces closely related matches. That could explain why it finds mood when you search on moode, whereas the normal search does not.

Thank you to Toad-Hall and SFHowes for your replies. I am using Win 10 pro and Thunderbird v60.7 now but probably 60.6.1 yesterday. You have both posted answers that fulfil my requirements. If I use 'Filter these messages' <ctrl-shift-k> I get moode and not mood. This works for the current folder I am in. If I continue across all folders <ctrl-k> I get mood, moode etc.. Using <ctrl-shift-f> this opens the global search box giving complete control of the search params.. Sledgehammer and nut spring to mind to search across all folders with <ctrl-shift-f> but it does indeed work. Thank you again for taking the time to answer my query. Mark.
