None of which the brain-dead email client that I have to use at the office will
filter on. I'm lucky to get it to work on "Subject:"

I can use Subject, from, to, cc, reply-to, in-reply-to, recipient, and all. It
doen't allow for "and" or "or". Just one of the above exclusively. But then
again if everyone would put the list in the "To" field instead of cc'ing the
list it might make life a little easier.

End of diatribe!! Maybe they'll let me use linux at work one of these days.
