Just made some tests, it does work. What I did :
 - Select the top folder you want to search into, 
 - Click "Recursive" in the search option of the Quicksearch,
 - Select "Extended" if you are using something different,
 - Use the expression 'b "search text"' and key in "Return" to validate

The "seach text" expression will be search in all the current folder and
subfolders. Each matching folder will have a nice little logo instead of
the traditional icon in the folder list, and if you select it, only
matching messages will be presented.
