Boolean Searches

Is there syntax documented somewhere for how to use NOT in a search? If I want to look for a message from Code Mouse that is not in my forums folder, how would I phrase that?

Good news! Yep, this is there, although it isn’t well documented.

The NOT operator works much the same as AND or OR does, although it’s a touch odd/unpredictable in places. (Feature request?)

For example, if I want all my emails with the subject “DEV Report”, but not in my “Archive/2020” folder, I’d use the following:

subject:"DEV Report" AND NOT in:Archive/2020

@amandabee So, your query would probably look like this:

from:"Code Mouse" AND NOT in:forums
