Beehive enhancement of the day: implement OBEO cache download on demand

Today, let's have a look at an issue that also might help to
improve the search experience: according to my knowledge,
Thunderbird will always behave in a way that, when an IMAP folder
is not up to date or not cached altogether, a search will trigger
a download to satisfy the search request (if server side search
is not configured - which is supported by TB with beehive as a

This may slow down the searches on first searching, but will
provide complete and correct search results.

OBEO on the other hand will return no results if the cache is
empty or configured to do only header download while you are
requesting a full text search.

Users need to both configure their folders for sync and for full
download to enable full text searches.

To enhance the user search experience we created the following
enhancement request:


You are welcomed to second this request through MOS.

With this posting I will pause my series of "beehive enhancement of
the day": I posted the most pressing issues for our site.

If you look at it, these issues are manageable in count and severity.

Beehive is a powerful, well designed product, running very stable at
our site.

Oracle need only go one step further, revise its decision not to
release 2.1 (2.2 etc.) and do some serious marketing to keep the hive
buzzing / make the hive buzz.

To all of you running a beehive installation: please do revise my last
weeks postings, do sound your assent in this forum or do address
support to further the enhancement requests. Do post your own
suggestions for enhancing beehive.

I hope Oracle will spent some sugar for the bees to survice the
winter and welcome spring next year.

Thanks and regards, Thomas
