For reasons that I’ve explained in other posts, I really prefer to 
have dedicated folders for mail to and from my regular correspondents. 
But I accept that I’ll need to set up smart mailboxes to filter my 
outgoing emails to a given correspondent. To take one example, here’s 
a smart mailbox I’ve set up. IMO the “from name contains” 
condition should result in my seeing messages both to and from my 
friend. But I’m seeing only my outgoing messages to my friend. I’ve 
tried applying the smart mailbox to All Messages and to “Andrew Buc 
(FastMail)” (how I’ve named the account in MM), and it makes no 
difference. Thanks.
