I also haven't found a way to search through the messages from Protonmail server-side, but that's usually not an issue, as I pull all the messages to my machine locally anyway and can search them there... I use mbsync to get the mails, and notmuch to search through them, using this macro:
macro index L "<enter-command>unset wait_key<enter><shell-escape>read -p 'notmuch query: ' x; echo \$x >~/.cache/mutt_terms<enter><limit>~i \"\`notmuch search --output=messages \$(cat ~/.cache/mutt_terms) | head -n 600 | perl -le '@a=<>;chomp at a;s/\^id:// for at a;$,=\"|\";print at a'\`\"<enter>" "show only messages matching a notmuch pattern"
I also use this script to automate the pulling of emails and updating of the search database:
if [ -n "$MBSYNC" -o -n "$NOTMUCH" ]; then
echo "Already running one instance of mail-sync. Exiting..."
echo "Deleting messages tagged as *deleted*"
notmuch search --format=text0 --output=files tag:deleted | xargs -0 --no-run-if-empty rm -v
I run it periodically with a systemd-timer, or manually if I get impatient.
