    just tested with an external monitor
    do I have to set them as mirroring?
    seems an erratic bug
    cannot replicate it

    This is happening as well. I use two external monitors on MacOS 10.13.5.

    I have this issue too. I have one external monitor.

    Quitting and restarting Airmail brought the search field back.

    Same. I use an external monitor, not with mirroring. When I unplug the external, it does not fix the problem. The only fix is to reboot Airmail.

    Airmail, please respond to this group with a fix. This has been going on for some time now.

    I experience the same issue. The search bar (top-right) area disappears after the app has been open for X hours. If I close Airmail and then re-open it will appear. Kind of a pain and would like to see this fixed.

    seems related to external monitor
    I 'm using an external monitor but I cannot replicate
    there is one event that triggers the missing search box?

    my search box is disappearing regularly as well and only restart of Airmail can solve it. It doesn't matter if I have external monitor or not. It happens all the time. Very annoying

    The search box disappears regularly. Probably at least once a day.

    It is becoming almost worth changing apps as it is so disrupting to productivity.

    Is this problem going to be solved?

    The problem has been known for a long time know.

    Thanks in advance.

    I cannot replicate the issue
    with dual monitor, is probably due with that configuration
    thanks for reporting

    I have the same issue. This issue has been posted online long time ago. The administrator should pay attention to this problem as without searching function, reading a massive amount of emails is a huge pain. This could lead to the entire app become useless.
