Why are search results different based on what folder you are in?

This is a limitation of your IMAP provider. Gmail and Office 365 are the only email providers to offer a virtual “All Mail” mailbox that allows third party apps like Missive to search in all folders at once. Other IMAP providers are lacking this, so Missive only searches in one folder at a time, either Inbox, Sent, Archive, etc.
