Message fetch policy


I have a few questions regarding Geary’s fetch policy. Right now it seems that Geary is downloading full messages (with attachments) from configured period and then all searches are done locally and not server side (which requires some IMAP extensions to be present not sure how common they are amongst mail services). So in order for everything to stay reachable one effectively needs to download a whole message archive (a’la POP).

Is it going to change in the future? Do you think user should be able to control what is being downloaded (headers, message body, attachments) and indexed? Is there a plan to implement server side searches?

NB for my setup I use version 3.38.1 with Gmail account.
