Yeah, I didn't word my request very good... I meant of course if
there was a reliable way for TB to detect it is connecting to a DC
server that had full text search capability enabled...

I was thinking (hoping) that the IMAP CAPABILITY command could be
leveraged to make this determination. From the responses both here
on the enhancement request I'm guessing the answer is no, or at
least 'not reliably' - obviously not something that could be done

But I'd still like to pursue an enhancement to TB that would make
this work if manually enabled, so...

Could DC add that to its CAPABILITY response? Or would that be
breaking the RFCs?
