Hi, I'm  struggling to create a search folder that gets exactly what I need from my inbox. I use rules to apply quite a number of categories to my inbox, and further categorise them myself as I work on them. I want to have a few search folders to streamline things so I can see in which box my workload lies.

 

So far I can create a folder that will select everything in, say, category A but NOT category B. What I need is something that will choose everything in category A, NOT category B AND NOT category C. What happens when I try to do this is I get everything in category A and either not B or not C. 

 

Any ideas? Thanks!
