[EP-tech] Re: Search, for partial matches

Perhaps your email field is of type "email" or "id" in which case an 
exact match is performed?

Try setting the "match" parameter to "IN" in your search (match is the 
3rd argument of ->add_field)

Also how stuff is searched/indexed is defined in the metafield classes 
(e.g. look at MetaField/Email::get_index_codes) - look what's in your 
foo__rindex table to see what has been indexed.
