    Default "Pattern" reference?

    Hello!

    I've been looking for a reference to the syntax of the "matches pattern" option in the Mail Filters. I've searched for "pattern", "regex", "expression" with no luck. (Perhaps I missed it?). Would anyone have a better search term for the wiki that I use to find the syntax? (I was trying stuff like:

    (Sales|Order)

    But it didn't appear to be working. I wasn't certain if perhaps there was an implied ^ and $ surrounding the pattern? And for patterns that search the From/To/CC fields, for an address like:

    Avg Joe <avg.joe@gmail.com>

    Is the whole line used? Or just the email address?

    Thanks for your time!

    Default

    Just a followup in case someone else has the same problem. = ) I couldn't find the info in the wiki, but it looks like documentation to a slightly older version (the terms are different) in the help that is linked to on the zimbra web interface itself. So this isn't a true regular expression, but rather just supports:

    * (same as the regex .*)
    ?
    \ (escape)

    Just in case someone else wanted to know!
