Smartfolders Should Support "OR" as well as "AND"
I would like to have a Smartfolder that contains email messages from a set of senders that I specify. Right now, if I specify a set of email messages when I construct the Smartfolder, the only ones that show up are those from all senders specified. I want to have emails from each sender as in Apple Mail and other email apps. So support "OR" as well as "AND" in constructing Smartfolders. It can be done using a raw query but it is very messy to do.

I have been using smart folders for years in Apple Mail and the option "OR" is clearly very useful when I want to get a folder with more than one condition. 😉
It would be great if Outlook could do it.
It would prevent from having too many folders in the side bar 👍

Clearly this issue is not a priority. And yet, logically seems so straightforward to implement, as well as useful. Apple mail has had this feature for years.

I use smart folders to organise my mail.
I want to be able to add conditions in the advanced search function so that I can create a smart folder that contains email from several different people.
Essentially, when adding conditions to an advanced search, currently it is an 'and' operation. I want to be able to make these conditions 'or'.
