In Lotus Notes there are two different "mechanisms" to show documents: Views and Folders.
For you as a user they look the same, but they are completely different:
A view automatically shows documents, that match certain criteria. Whenever a document meets the criteria, it is automatically shown in the view.
A folder contains documents, that "someone" puts in them "manually" (more or less). For the Inbox- Folder that "someone" is the router task.
It is important to know, that only the folder "knows" which documents belong to it. The documents themselfes do NOT know, in which folder(s) they are displayed.
That means: you could create a view, that contains all documents from a specific sender by defining the following selection formula:
SELECT From = "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Or for multiple senders (or different formats of the same sender):
SELECT From = "email@example.com" : "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Or even less specific:
SELECT @Contains( @Lowercase( From ) ; "tim" )
For multiple users you can use the "or"- operator or use the power of list manipulation built into Formula language:
SELECT @Contains( @Lowercase( From ; "tim" ) | @Contains( @Lowercase( From ; "tom" )
SELECT @Contains( @Lowercase( From ; "tim" : "tom" : "paul" )
BUT you cannot add a condition like
& Folder = "($Inbox)" as that information simply is not stored anywhere in the document.
I know, that the All- Documents- View contains a column with the name of the folder, but the command that renders it is only valid in Column Formulas and NOT in selection formulas. And in addition a column containing this formula is not even sortable or categorizable.
So the closest you can get is using my select- example above to get all mails from one sender and copy the design from the "All documents"- view to at least get a display of the containing folder.
