      I'm not aware of a filter-simplifying process, but for copying the email addresses - you can right-click the "button" and the email address drops down which you can copy.

      Since I haven't received any information on this that I have seen so far, this is a bump in case there is more information about it now that wasn't there before. Thank you. TerraC

I have followed the changes, and generally went into the new Beta versions when they are released to help test them out and learn how to use the new versions. This current version, however, has made some actions more difficult than previous versions. Specifically, creating a mail filter is now more labor intensive. In previous versions, I could select the mail message, section Actions, and select Filter. It would auto-populate the sender email address, but it was a field you could modify if needed. Now, you cannot create a filter from your inbox. And since the sender is now a "button", you cannot copy/paste the email address into the Sender field, once you have actually gotten to the location where you can create the filter. I ended up adding the email address into Contacts so I could copy/paste the email address into the filter, but also was hoping that maybe I could create the filter from the Contact list and save some steps. Overall, the beta version as not been that difficult of a change for me, but I really am disappointed in how filters are handled now. Did I miss some method of adding filters that simplifies the process? This was the only method I could figure out since the Beta release. Thank you - Terra
