Hmm. I just tried it: I typed "put Debian on top" in the search box,
selected "user" in the list box, selected these quarters:
[X] Jul to Sep 2001
[X] Apr to Jun 2001
and the search engine gave me this as the first match:
* An *idea* that *might* put Debian on top (?)
Maybe the search engine ignores sender names, I'm not sure, it's possible.
