Why don't they build it into Mail, etc.
Authored by: smanzo on Jul 13, '05 04:56:41PM

See Advanced Options toggle widget

(On clicking)

Four buttons are available
AND
OR
SAVE
CLEAR

Each criterion gets it's own line
Command+Click to select, pressing appropriate operand button while selected applies that criterion to all selected items AND groups them together into a single line with ( ) marks around it

Further edits nest as necessary.

It'll be messy once you get a few levels deep, but it's hidden under the Advanced Options button. You can click that same button to go back to the Simple interface (with a warning that this will undo advanced changes I would expect, as they wouldn't be viewable in the Simple interface)

Is this a suggestion? Or is it really an option? If it is an option, please elaborate on the "Advanced Options Widget" and how to access it.

Cheers
