Hi fl0w,

in order to send search queries with unicode characters, you need to specify the charset. I have given some instruction on how to do this in the thread Imap search query with non ascii characters (gmail) some time ago.

Here the snippet once again, updated to the latest version of the code:
var subject = "Bärtz";
var messages = client.Folders.Inbox.Search("CHARSET UTF-8 SUBJECT {" + Encoding.UTF8.GetByteCount(subject) + "}\r\n" + subject);
Give it a try, if you experience any issues or have further questions, let me know. Also feel free to contact me in German.
