I would like to create a rule for Apple Mail that combines "all" and "any". Specifically, I need to do a rule where I have a group of "any" criteria, "Message content contains X" OR "Message content contains Y" (and potentially some more ...) but I would like this to only apply to one of my email accounts, so the condition "Account is iCloud" must always be met. Somehow along those lines

In the Rulesenter image description here

I could, of course, create multiple "all"-rules and have them perform the following action, but that is cumbersome. Any suggestions?

The action I would want to attach is to move the matching messages to a designated "On my Mac" mailbox/folder and at the same time moving them to the IMAP trash so they'll get deleted from the server.

    Sorry mixed up rules and mailboxes - there might be an answer if we know what actions you will take. – Mark Apr 21 at 13:12
  • @Mark See my edit above. Your first idea seemed like it would do the trick if only there was that option to find messages "in a particular mailbox" also under rules (not just under SmartFolders). Seems to me like a poor design decision ... – jan Apr 21 at 15:55
