10.4: Build complex booleans in Mail with Smart Folders
Authored by: paulhagstrom on Nov 18, '07 10:16:42PM

Following up on that last comment (where I said I hadn't tested it under 10.5.1), I just now did -- and it still doesn't work, in the same way I described above.

I had two MailTags keywords, X7 and X30, and two subordinate smart mailboxes, one looking for the X7 keyword and received not within the last 7 days, the other looking for the X30 keyword and received not within the last 30 days. The main smart mailbox looked for messages in one subordinate smart mailbox or in the other subordinate smart mailbox. I should have gotten about 20 messages (since one subordinate mailbox showed 5, the other 20), but instead got 36000 -- anything not within the last 7 or 30 days or bearing either X7 or X30, from what I can tell. It or'ed everything together.
