Mail rules with multiple conditions in subject/body (OR vs AND)

Using Outlook 2007.

I need a mail rule that runs if the subject contains "apples" AND "oranges"

AND the body contains "bananas" (it's okay if bananas is also in the subject).

But when creating rules, the conditions automatically become "OR" statements

and there seems to be no way to change them to "AND" statements.

Does anyone know a way around this?

Thank you!

You'll have to create additional rules. For an example see;

Here's how I did it:

http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.outlook/msg/46292dddbdfa4336

The "and" between the subject and body will happen automatically if you use

the "with specific words in the subject" and "with specific words in the body"

conditions in the same rule. Multiple conditions are always ANDed.
