If I want to maintain one Gmail filter for multiple "2 or more argument" statements how is this formatted?
Something like this...
<to:[email protected] AND list:(<123456.xt.local>)> OR <to:[email protected] AND list:(<7891011.xt.local>)>
  1. For each statement, that contains two arguments, we need an "AND" which means brackets() ... correct?

  2. Between each construct we need an "OR" which means curly braces {} ... correct?

Shouldn't this statement work?

{(to:[email protected] list:(<123456.xt.local>))} {(to:[email protected] list:(<7891011.xt.local>))}

I am getting a warning that my filter contains characters that cause issues.

Filter searches that contain special characters like [ ], ( ), &, #, *, !, %, $, £, may have unexpected results and are not recommended. Do you still wish to continue to the next step?

I understand this would have to be in the "has" field.

Oh! Thanks for the tips.

    Does this work? (to:[email protected] list:(123456.xt.local)) OR (to:[email protected] list:(7891011.xt.local)). I think part of the problem might be the < and > signs. See here: Gmail Search Operators

  • Those angle brackets are there just to show the separate statements in my example. I am not using those in my filter.
