I am not sure what you mean.

In thunderbird, Shift-Ctrl-K allows you to set a filter for messages ...
it allows you to filter on Sender, Recipient, Subject, or Body

If you press Shift-Ctrl-F you can search messages and there is a
dropdown box for searching that has more than 20 things you can search
including body.

Body == message content    (it is everything that is not headers and
attachments)

I have never seen a client that is as easy to search from ... not sure
what the issue is.  The main reason I use thunderbird is because of the
unbelievable search features and indexes.
