i'm noticing some differences between zd2 compared to zd1, and am wondering if these differences are "features" or "bugs" or something else.
1. tags: it appears one has to create separate tags for both server side messages and local folders under zd2...and even if the tags are set to be "identical" in terms of name and color between the two tag sets, moving messages from server to local or local to server results in the loss of the tag. shouldn't there be a single universal tag set that can be applied to both server side and local folder messages?
2. search: it appears search only applies to server side messages. while it is possible to search local folder messages, one has to be currently viewing a local folder in order to search it...which pretty much defeats the purpose of a database email system i would say. used to be able to search terms for entire zd1 message store be it server side or local folders with a single search string.
3. local folders: does not appear to be fully recognized by zd2, which may impact #2 above as well. recently moved all mail (~1.8gb) from server to local, tried to respond to a now local message and was informed said message was not valid and did not exist. am now in process of moving all mail back from local to server despite my 2gb server side limit.
am seriously considering downgrading back to zd1. zd2 seems to be faster in most respects, has improved appearance (although still only looks like a native app in java-land), but the functionality seems to be broken in many key areas. the new preference tree seems a bit confusing as well...and seems to lead the split between server side and local rules.
any words of wisdom or commentary to contradict the above and/or point me in the right direction would be appreciated.
