Build search queries using AND, OR, NOT, and -term.
When including more than one logic operator in a query, the order in which these terms are placed is important. For example,
- Add the first term "A", and then add term "and B"; the query searches as: (A AND B)
- Add a term "OR C"; the query searches as: ((A AND B) OR C)
- Add a term "AND D"; the query searches as: (((A AND B) OR C) AND D)
- Add a term "NOT E", the query searches as: ((((A AND B) OR C) AND D) NOT E)
Typically, you first build a population of results by using "OR" or "NOT", and then subtract items from that population by using "AND".
To force a different order of operations, place parentheses yourself using Keyword expressions.
When you enter a logic operator or a keyword expression in the Search for field, the rest of your search criteria is AND'd with the query. For example, if you enter "A AND -B" you can still specify a recipient in the Sent To field.
