                    162: <p>The biggest new feature here is the addition of a Search box, which allows filtering the number of results</p>
                    163: <p>Also you can now move the filter to the top of the bottom of the list. This is actually significant as the 
                    164: order you see on screen is the same as the order in which the filters are executed. This also means, if a filter
                    165: on the top moves a message from the inbox then the filters below will not get a chance to execute on this message;
                    166: as the filters are only executed on messages in the inbox, they will simply be ignored. Therefore it is very important 
                    167: that it remains easy to re-order the relative positions of the filters. This also works while the search box is active.</p>
