Actually, Thunderbird allows users to search an entire account (e.g. jane.doe@gmail.com). In addition, you can have all your accounts (e.g. jane.doe@yahoo.com, jane.doe@college.edu) under Local Folders.

Thunderbird 1.5.0 Release Notes:
“Saved Search Folders can now search across multiple accounts…”

There is an step by step tutorial on the Thunderbird Support Forum. The link is “Saved Search” (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Saved_Search)
