Searching Emails as a User in Zimbra OpenSource Edition

Hi,
I got a little trouble with the "searching" feature in the OS Edition of Zimbra. Under normal circumstances, it works fast and great, but here...
We got lots of emails with the Subject
20005422 on 22.03.2013 18:55:00

20005444 on 23.03.2013 18:55:00

20005455 on 23.03.2013 18:55:00
and so on.
If i search for 20005422 I find the first Email

If I search for 200054* I find all Emails

If I search for 2000* I find a lot more emails.


But In this case, the last 4 Digits are relevant.
I thought a simple
subject:*5455 would solve the problem and returns the last mail of the three above to my window, but it doesn't..
How can I search fo the last digits/letters in a word of the subject or body?
This should be possible, shouldn't it?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Cheers,
Uli-G

The notes at Zimbra Web Client Search Tips - Zimbra :: Wiki state that the wildcard works after a prefix. I don't believe the indexes are set up to allow a wildcard to come at the beginning of a word.

Just to add to that, I found this specific text in there, so it doesn't look like wildcards will do what you are looking for, unfortunately:


Wildcards (*) are only supported at the end of word, and the search works as if it's a prefix search.
