Awesome! You can then add that search folder to your favorites and drag it to the top. Worked for a customer who only wanted to see the last 30 days of email in his "Inbox" and we don't allow macros. I named the folder "30 Day Inbox" and dragged it to the top.

I'd just like to say that this is fantastic -- I had no idea you could say "n days/weeks ago" in the Value field for "on or after"!

While this works for 2 weeks ago, it is merely a sliding window of the last 14 days.
Instead, is there a way to see only what came in THIS week and LAST week?

M T W TH F SA SU
week1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
week2 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
week3 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

Let's say its the 18th. I want to only see week2 and week3, i don't want to see the 4th, 5th , 6th, 7th

Hi there,

In the 4th step, instead of selecting "on or after" from the Condition drop down list, you should select "betwwen"; instead of typing "2 weeks ago" or "14 days ago" into the Value box, you should use "Last monday and today".

Wow! I came to the right place!
Impressed with your knowledge and responsiveness, Amanda!

Using between and "last monday and today" excluded today's entries for some reason. It may be truncating the time portion of today and using midnight value.
It worked if I used "last monday and tomorrow", however

I played around and ended up going with this instead:
"on or after" and "last monday"

Thanks again! BTW can you point me to a resource that shows all the possible values we can use?

Hi Kevin,
I checked but could not find the possible values list. I assume that Outlook will take the regular ones. We will have to try. 🤞
If you find the related resource, please do share here! 🙏

Amanda, I am greatly impressed!

The response time, the knowledge, and the very clear instructions are all excellent!
I definitely came to the right place.

I had to make a minor tweak to the Value expression: Last monday and tomorrow
Maybe due to the way our environment is set up?


Thank you very much!
