Search in gmail can't search partial words ?

    search in gmail can't search partial words ?????

    I notice that my gmail can't find emails by searching with parts of words (like search for 'stup' instead of 'stupid') while yahoo mail can. As a result, I am simply unable to find my emails in gmail despite it's alleged 'superb search capabilities'. No, I am not gonna tag every single message to find it later, I don't need to do that in yahoo HELLO ... Is there a way to override that stupid gmail behavior?

    why not just type the whole word?

    I don't use gmail, but surely there's some sort of wildcard, like stu*.
