When used searching Search All mail via Search Toolbar is not using searching in the archives of mail.
It would be beneficial if Search All mail via Search Toolbar sought out in the mail archive of the mail box.

I promoted this, but I think you'll find that this is a feature restricted to third party archiving softwares.

I have had this conversation with several IT Managers in the past...

"For mail archiving. you could take the free option, provided natively by Domino, but your users will need to search their archives separately from their live mailboxes. They have to search twice."

"Hmmm... Management won't like that - will a third party utility do it?"

"Yes - most of them will. ReduceMail Pro or IONET Archiver for Notes do the job perfectly. If you want to spend more, we could look at Tivoli..."

"Ok - look into it..."

There are third party tools which already allow for this. They leave a stub and can allow you to search across multi-databases (mail <-> archive). Haven't checked for this use case, but Notes DBs can be enabled for multi-DB searches. Something that was more popular in the V3 days, but still exists. Might help.

It is still possible use "View\Search this view" for searching in mail archives. If Search Toolbar in 8.5.x doesn't search in mail archives only, it is a bug or a feature?

@ Vit Zachodil: According to my information it is a feature.
5) Martin Hansgut929 (28 Jan 2012)
@ Stephen Bailay: Yes it was meant for native archiving via the Lotus Domino server to Domino archiving server or local. The archive database is not possible to add to the list of Search toolbar using the "Always Show List in Search ..."

@ Vit Zachodil: Use the "View \ Search this view" is not intuitive if the menu in "Search Toolbar" include item "All Mail". As I discovered, users intuitively use the Search Toolbar.
