Usage example

matches

The filter will apply to emails with parameters that exactly match the specified value (address or exact spelling of a word).

If Subject has the value “Madness”, the filter applies to messages with the subject “Madness is everywhere” and “Don't fight the madness”. But it won't apply to a message with the subject “About madnes”.

doesn't match

The filter will apply to emails with parameters that don't exactly match the specified value (address or exact spelling of a word).

If Subject has the value “Madness”, the filter applies to the message with the subject “About madnes”. The filter won't apply to messages with subjects like “Madness is everywhere” and “Don't fight the madness”.

contains

The filter will apply to emails with parameters that match the specified value or contain the specified characters (for example, all forms of the specified word or email addresses with the specified element).

If Subject has the value “cat”, the filter applies to messages with the subjects “Cheshire Cat”, “Caterpillar's advice” and “Catching up”.

doesn't contain

The filter will apply to messages that don't contain the specified characters.

If Subject has the value “cat”, the filter applies to messages with subjects like “Madness is everywhere”, “Message from the Queen” and “I'm late”. Likewise, the filter won't apply to an email with the subject “Cheshire Cat”.
