Just a heads up I did a quick test of that one the latest internal and I didn't get any results. Richy`s right, though, that would be what you'd do. Search just came out of surgery, might be a couple of issues.

I looked at this too. Local search works, not sure internet is hooked up. I was going to look at it.

Searching for a poster in Internet Search still seems to be broken. It always returns an error message NO RESULTS FOUND FOR QUERY "".

By the way, it would be cool to be able to search for a poster by means of a keyword "poster:" (similar to the keyword "group:"), so that you could combine both keywords in one search query. That would be more flexible than the current solution with the drop-down box where you have to choose between Subject and From.
