  See bug reports:


It's not just giving up prematurely, it just isn't applying the
previous logic.

For example, with Find Messages on the 'To or 'From' fields, the
search appears not to be looking for a matching string anywhere in those
fields, but only for a matching 'component' (where 'component' is either
the characters to the left of the "@", or to the right). 
   For example, if searching in Sent-mail for email sent to
"fredsmith at gmail.com", then a search string of "freds" would find
nothing, nor would even a search string of "gmail'! 
  Only a search string of "fredsmith" would succeed at all, and even
then it might not find *all* of 'To' fields with that component. 

As a test, I did a Find Messages for "gmail.com" in the 'To' fields of a
Sent-mail folder containing 4,886 emails. KDE 4.5.2's KMail (1.13.5)
found 395 emails sent to someone at gmail.com.
   KDE 4.8.2 on the other hand - given the same email Sent-mail folder -
found only *11* matches:
