I want to set a filter that:

  • Sets filter for matching new emails
  • Does not filter emails before a set date

This is because I have 1000s of old emails that I don't want to filter. But seems setting "Data after..." does not work in combination with new emails.

I thought of e.g. setting the filter without date condition, then removing older matches, but I have many such filters I need to set so prefer a more elegant solution.

Grateful for any ideas.

  • Filters are used with new mail only. I am having a problem trying to understand your goal. – mhoran_psprep Jun 16 '19 at 13:03
  • Filters can be used with existing emails, by checking "Also apply filter to matching conversations". Then older emails are filtered as well as new ones. But then ALL older emails are matched. I want new emails, plus those going back say only 1 year. – Kaveh1000 Jun 17 '19 at 11:25
