You only want one subject: field: subject:("mailing-list" -re) GMail can only deal with one of each field operators.

I don't know of a way of doing it directly in Google Reader however Yahoo have a particularly nice rss/atom feed processing engine called Yahoo Pipes. This allows you to pull a number of feeds from other places apply translations and filtering to them, and then re-publish the modified feed. You can then set Google Reader (Or any other preferred RSS reader ...

This is your regular email address: example@gmail.com This is your email with plus addressing: example+seed@gmail.com When you create a filter, just filter for messages sent To the one with the particular word after the plus (+) sign. So your filter will look like this: To: example+seed@gmail.com Now you can just hand out that email ...

There's a GreaseMonkey script called Google Reader Filter which allows you to specify lists of words to kill - if the word appears in the title, that item gets dimmed. More info here and here

The Mute option is only enabled if your message is also in the inbox. Since your filter has the "Skip inbox" you will never see it

Currently, you can not create such filters. Create two and use both. If you really need strict display of only @mycompany.com-related messages in your inbox, either use IMAP and some client, or some GMail app (there are few for MacOS), or write a greasemonkey script that hides anything without from/to label. UPD: ...

Remember that you can use any gmail search operator in a filter via the Has the words: textbox since gmail just AND's together the operators that are filled in via the filter dialog. I'll suggest you start by trying this: Create a filter that finds new emails with your name in them and applies a temporary label. The search operation you would use in the ...

Here is the algorithm: Perform the search in your mails. Go to the selection of your messages (checkbox icon with small down arrow) and choose "Select all". As long as there are some other messages the GMail will prompt you with a message above your mailbox (see picture). Just click on this message and you now can delete/move/mark as spam all these ...

You can use from:(!%sender%) to filter all emails but the ones from a particular sender. For example, if you only wanted to receive emails from Facebook, you would use from:(!facebook) in a filter that trashes all matching emails. To add such an example filter, put !facebook inside the "from" field when creating filter options.

There is no search operator to restrict to the body of a message. I would recommend setting up a filter with your name in the "Has the words" field, and apply the label as your action. There is no need to add "is:unread" because filters apply to incoming messages. Likewise you cannot remove the label via filter or take automatic action after the message has ...

You can use the Reading Level selector in Google's Advanced Search to do what you want.

This may seem awkward, but you have to: Click the arrow on the search box Enter is:spam in the "Has the words" field Click "Create filter with this search »" Accept the warning message Change the filter so the spam is never sent to spam (sic!)

Gmail doesn't do this. But if the emails do have text in the message, it can do it.

You can make the mute button come back when filtering by including the is:unread filter and adding -is:muted. I have the following query displayed beneath my inbox using the Multiple Inboxes lab, and it allows me to mute conversations: label:Support is:unread -is:muted This shows me anything labelled Support that I haven't read, and that isn't muted yet. ...

The other methods suggested may not catch all email sent to that address; that is, sometimes your email will not be in the To: field, as when the email is sent to a mailing list to which you are subscribed. Making the Address First, to take advantage of the plus sign you mention, append the desired text to the first part of your email address. If your ...

There is an extension called Tweetfilter for Safari 5+ The above image is from Google Chrome using Twitter's web client. As an example I will try with the current trending Charlie Sheen. So I match the following in the filter Charlie Sheen CharlieSheen @charliesheen And the results that do not appear in my timeline. Notice this will not ...

I'm afraid you can't. Looking at Gmail help, there's nothing related to searching within attachments. You can specify a file name, but that's it: filename:physicshomework.txt Or you could save files you want to search through to Google Docs. The simple explanation why it's not possible is that it would require a tremendous amount of indexing to be ...

Ah, according to Gmail's help 'Using advanced search' I should be able to write (from:<Person1> OR to:<Person1>) (from:<Person2> OR to:<Person2>) ... in the 'Has the words' field. I shall try this...

Here are some account-related subjects (and the from address): Facebook Contact Email Change Notification (notification+*@facebookmail.com) Facebook Contact Email Confirmation (notification+*@facebookmail.com) Please reset your email notification settings (root+*@facebookmail.com) Using subject: from:(facebookmail.com) subject:(-"suggested you" ...

You can provide to other sites a modified version of your email address, like so: joe@gmail.com -> joe+sitename@gmail.com So if a site you provided a modified email address to sends you a message, you can set up a filter on the to field of the message to check for the sitename bit. You can create a filter for each variation you create. It's surprising, ...

Here's a bit of generalization for a real-world scenario that's likely to occur... I am a member in several groups that partially overlap. For some of those, setting up a Google group as suggested above is not applicable. Some mails do not involve all the members, so simply including everyone in the to: section will not work either. To differentiate and ...

It is a bug in the system. You will need to collect your messages without the label:yourlabel search. i.e. When you are creating/editing the filter, do a Test Search based on your filter. This will bring up all the results. From here you will find the once missing Mute Option in the More Actions Menu for each message. A second way would be have a second ...

The shortcut key for 'mute' is 'm'. I don't see 'mute' in any menu but the shortcut works for me in my google apps account.

I agree with @Andrew - Gmail won't handle this on its own. However, you could use an intermediary running procmail1, preprocess the mail and add something to the subject, or change its sender, so that it can be filtered secondarily in Gmail.

Have you tried using the not operator on subject: instead? subject:(mailing-list) -subject:(re)

You should use the new yahoo mail interface, it is easier to see your new options. Create a Folder Go to Options > Filters > Add Filter (then set up your filter to move to the folder).

Don't know exactly, but my guess is that when trying to do the delivery, the gmail server is looking up and figuring out the chain of forwards right from the start, in order to do the delivery properly the first time (rather than send the message on to itself, where it has to do another lookup, and so on). Given that, it would trivial for them to notice ...

I do something similar with some of my pipes. If you want a single feed as your output: Use the Fetch Feed component from the Sources category to retrieve the feeds. A single instance of it can retrieve more than one feed. If you need more than one source (eg. if you want to use other pipes as sources via the "My Pipes" category), use the Union component ...

You could use a keyboard macro tool like autohotkey (or the simpler texter, based on autohotkey) to define a single keystroke to execute a series of commands like that (see the gmail keyboard shortcuts for how to do the whole sequence with keystrokes & not a mouse - start with "." to get the "More Actions" drop-down). Yet another way is to create a ...

GMail does not search within the contents of your attachments. You can use the has:attachment keyword in GMail search to find all messages that have attachments. If "CV" was in the email itself (subject, body) then you could do has:attachment cv. You cannot create a contact list by selecting emails (manually or from search results). You have to go into ...
