That's okay, thanks. But it's only the beginning of my problem. How do you describe the effect of applying a filter on top of one or more other filters? Andrea wants to use "intersection", but I tend to think this is too "mathematical" and too vague to explain clearly what happens. What would be a good terminology for that?I think there are two possibilities when adding another filter: either broadening the already existing filtering ("union" in mathematical terms) or narrowing the already existing filtering ("intersection" in mathematical terms).It's what you call "intersection", obviously.Yes, my point was to mention the two less mathematical words: broadening and narrowing.That being said, I don't user Rmail but I don't think it obvious that filtering is always "intersection". Someone may filter their inbox to see mails from Alice, and add mails from Alice to the filtering.
Too many typos, sorry: That being said, I don't use Rmail but I don't think it is obvious that filtering is always "intersection". Someone may filter their inbox to see mails from Alice, and add mails from Bob to the filtering.
