Thank you. Then I think I understand.
(It was a long time ago that I used GMail.)

I got the impression that the checkboxes were to be removed. (And the filter proposal was intended to reduce clutter.) But the checkboxes still stays, right? The links are only ment to help setting various commonly used combinations of checkboxes?

Maybe not the filters themselves, but I DO want to be able to verify what crtiteria that is being used to select what has been included or excluded from a list that I'm looking at.

But obviously not simple enough for you to explain it clearly on the first try. :-)
