How to enable email search in XD03

In XD03 there's a search button (screen 0201) where you can look up a customer. Our client has a desire to add the ability to search by email to this screen. However when I look at the screen in se80, it has way more fields than what are actually shown, including an Email search field. Is there any way to get these extra fields enabled without doing a mod? I've been looking in SPRO and SHD0 but without luck so far.

    I'm guessing this is the screen in question (please post a screenshot next time to avoid any confusion).

    This screen is part of the address management, not just the customer master. TBH, searching by email seems like a bad idea because email is not stored in KNA1, it's stored in ADR6. And ADR... tables are used for all the addresses, not just customer accounts. It's not indexed by full email, although there is some kind of short email search field, purpose of which is not clear to me.

    Of course, you can't change a standard screen without a modification. It might be a better option to add a custom search help to DEBI but again, this won't help with performance. And emails can also be maintained as a contact, which is the whole other table.

      This is on a 7.0 server. The company in question is a retail business, and doing customer lookups by email is pretty standard in that business. I already created a new search help for them, but they wanted it added to the search screen which I'm not sure is possible without a mod, despite the field appearing to be there already but hidden.

    My program SAPMF02D has no 0201 screen, are we talking about the same program?
