    The short answer:

    You can't.

    This is a limitation of the app.

    Check out K-9, MailDroid or Kaiten. I have been using Kaiten (tablet version of K-9) and it offers search functions.

    Welcome to the Forum. I have not seen a search function in the Asus email app or any of the mobile apps. It's a great question but I am not sure a search function exists.

    K-9 is a good second option for me and I suppose Kaiten would also be good but the MailDroid app has a ton of functionality that suits me.

    Search function
    Spell check
    Spam control
    Create folders
    Select all, (like for dumping trash)

    and a lot more. Unfortunately the interface is geared more for a phone but it works well and you can create special rules until you're blue in the face. (I know because I have and I am)

    This is obnoxiously irritating - it is perhaps the most important function required in an e-mail app and Google has overlooked it. Appalling.

    The Email app is called ASUS Email, so it may be an ASUS thing in this case and not a Google issue.

    Email Programs

    First Thanks for your input Gents.
    I agree it is really a huge downfall of the Transformer.

    I have MS Exchange and POP account and Gmail

    Some draw backs of the programs above:

    K-9 does not work with Exchange.

    Katien might but I dont think so.

    Touchdown may do it all but I'm ot sure. It is $20. How does that work BTW? If I buy it once can I use it on my phone and Tablet?

    Gmail is just counter intuitive to all of the MS email programs I have used. Plus it grabs hold of everything and starts duplicating and linking.
    Geeze I had it the way I wanted don't mess with it. Sheesh!

    The Google platform has never integrated Email / Contacts / Address / Calendar like Blackberry/Rim does. I seem to remember a program BBSmart that made everthing work together very well. eg. lets say I get an email with something I would like set as a memo or calendar entry Google makes you copy open paste instead of the BBSmart way of giving you the option to plunk the email subject line in the calendar from the email program.

    Oh well not much we can do relearn google's way.

    Since I'm here.

    Does some one have a good stock watcher program? Stocks for Tablet seems to force close pretty consistantly.

    I noticed very little difference in the update. I'm stock B70. I use both the stock browser and Dolphin HD. They both struggle at times. My keyboard is backordered

    The whole concept of the BlackBerry was designed around mail so it's not quite fair to use that as a comparison, imo
