Filter Syntax and Useful Tips

Filters are NOT case-sensitive. So, entering "hello" will match "hello", "Hello", "HELLO", etc.

Filters with multiple criteria should put a single criterion per line.

Filters that look for "contains" look for for the text you enter between "word boundaries"... spaces, commas, @, angle brackets. Any non-letter characters, basically. So, to match any address at a domain (for instance, pobox.com):

  • enter "From: matches pattern *@pobox.com" to match any username at the domain
  • enter "From: contains pobox.com" to match any username at any subdomain (best for companies)

To match a specific email address, just enter the email address. Quotes or angle brackets are not required.
