    Default strange searching behavior

    OK I have found some searching problem and looking for some help here:

    I have a email subject is
    "ASIA-4213/2010RES: RES: BORGES SHAFE09110529 CHANGE TO 09120042 R/O ref.71057/102406"

    When I am trying to search the email subject by the following string,
    I am able to seach the email:
    ------------------------------------------
    ASIA-4213*
    SHAFE09110529
    09120042
    0912004*
    CHANG*



    but it's not able to return result by following string:
    ------------------------------------------
    *4213*
    ASIA*
    *2010*
    *102406
    *09110529
    *HANG*



    I had hardly read Zimbra Web Client Search Tips - Zimbra :: Wiki
    , but I assume that "*09110529" or "*102406" should be able to search the message but it didn't.

    Anyone know how's the searching function is working ?
    I am so confusing on it...

    Default

    I would image it is parsing the search string from left to right; which is why the first one would match and not the second.
