In the past I used to just dumb old mail into 1 archive folder, but now wish to re-organize it.
A big handicap is that, within columns view, I can't see the actual email address that mail has been sent to.
(I have a column with actual email from, but there is none available for 'to')

Hence, I probably have to resort to Advanced Search.

Is there a way to search for mail items using booleans?

Within the 'Search Folder Criteria', the 3rd tab (Advanced Search), I tried
Field
TO: contains domain1
TO: contains domain2

but that doesn't work, 0 hits (there are emails matching either one of the domains)

Thanks.

p.s.
I tried with @domain1 @domain2
as well as the the query builde

That should work - the from field uses the display name, not the address but I have not tested the To field. Does it work with one entry?

Ahum...
Forget it... today it worked.
Really puzzled as to why it didn't work yesterday: I used the very same method/search criteria.
Even after first deleting the existing search folder(s).
BTW I tried with: just 'domain', 'domain.com' and with '@domain', also I tried with just one entry (i.e. not the "OR")
No hits.

Today it worked fine, with just 'domain' (so, let's say, just : slipstick)

Oh, just come to think of it, though it is long shot: I was reorganizing/moving around mails. It could be that the Microsoft server needed time to 'process' all the changes.

Anyway, it is solved.
Thanks again for replying.
