How does the Luminate Online search engine work for the Email module?

When I search for an email message, the results seem almost random. Why is this?
The built in search feature works by searching terms using AND not OR criteria.

Example:

When your data is the following:

2016 Recruitment Email 1
2016 Recruitment Email 2
2016 Recruitment Email 3
2016 Recruitment Email 4
2016 Recruitment Email 5
Hearts for Ezra

And you search for:
2016 Recruitment Email 1

You get 5 results because those results all contain:
2016 AND Recruitment AND Email AND 1
(the "1" is in one in 2016 for emails 2, 3, 4, 5)

If you search for:
2016_Recruitment_Email_2
you get the one result you're looking for. (Underscores substitute for spaces)

If you search for:
2016 Ezra
you get 0 results because none of the message titles have both 2016 AND Ezra.

To optimize your search terms, try using underscores " _ " in place of spaces.
