I'm pretty sure Tom is seeing what we all are seeing. But he wants this instead:
"When the message is returned from a search it should appear just as it would if you were scrolling through messages. The title followed with first couple lines of the message."
That's the issue. I finally get what he's asking for and, like Shal, I vehemently disagree. :)
Messages are the sole opinion of the author, especially the fishy ones.
