The problem is probably that Claws doesn't have (or doesn't think it
has) the email bodies cached.
Maybe you can check if it fetches bodies using the Network log.

Test on a little folder: if it fetches bodies again and again when you
do searches, there's a problem. If it does so only once, then it's

You can check "Synchronise for offline use" in folder properties to
have bodies automatically fetched.
