I'm trying to make a mail filter that filters e-mails from firstname.lastname@example.org .. However, sometimes his e-mails come from email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org . And sometimes he sends e-mails from email@example.com.
So I'm trying to use regular expressions to solve my problem.
So far this is what I have:
This filter is catching firstname.lastname@example.org and I don't want it to. Is anyone here good at regular expressions and able to help me? I'm completely L_O_S_T.

I don't know the answer as it has been a long time and I really cannot be bothered to dig out any references (I can't even remember where they are).
I think I can tell you why it is doing what it is though. The ^ (caret) tells it that a string is starting with "drew" in it, so it correctly finds that string in "andrew". I would have thought it would find "andrews" as well?
Off the top of my head, what you have looks a bit odd for a regular expression........... something tells me there ought to be some brackets somewhere? I would suggest that you look in your manual for "string delimiters"?
Just a guess mind you
