Search by Date

on Fri Jul 06, 2018 1:51 pm
I might as well take advantage of my up time.
Is there any way to search my stored mail by Date (before, between after, on)—there are so many options, I may very well have missed this one?
And while I'm here, how does one use the sort by <<Label>> option?

No you did not. No search by Date yet (somehow it's always pushed forward), as a work-around you can have some RegEx fun. Are there any RegEx experts around (eppack)?

Heh! You give me too much credit, Brana Smile I don't claim to be a regex expert, far from it, but I do use a free windows app called Rad Software Regular Expression Designer that can construct expressions. I only use it to locate text within email headers by entering "(first value)|(optional second value)" and so on, which is easy-peasy.

who also has suggested a search by date Smile

PS After I sent this, I learned that the one I recommended no longer has a website. I have had the installer forever, tho, and can post it somewhere if anyone is interested. There are plenty of others out there too, tho, I'm sure.

After some poking around, I did find that an expression like this (which I did not create from scratch, trust me):

((0[1-9]|1[0-2])/(0[1-9]|[12]\d|3[01])/[12]\d{3})

does state that the date "08/07/2018" (which happens to be my birthday Smile resolves as a valid date. (I had to turn the code around to use format MM/DD/YYYY and changed hyphens to slashes for this test, which is most common in the US, although the original, YYYY-MM-DD would work better with a compare. YMMV) But that said, I don't know if there is a way to *compare* date values pulled from a regex, or where I'd even put it in the Pandora Find Messages dialog. Brana?

Have you tried: Any Header matches RegExp

Then go with some pattern that not only matches RFC date format, but particular date/age as well.
