Overview: Mail Views Label criteria does not always produce expected results:

* Label|Contains - opposite effect (Doesn't Contains works as expected)
* Begins With - opposite effect
* Ends With - opposite effect 

Steps to reproduce:
1. In the Views drop down select Customize
2. Select New to open the Customize Message Views dialog
3. Select the New button
4. Enter the following criteria and close the dialog
"Label" "Contains" "Important" 
5. Select a folder with messages without labels and other messages labeled as

Actual Results: Displays all messages, except for the ones labeled Important.

Similar problems occur when using other label criteria:
* Begins With - opposite effect
* Ends With - opposite effect 

Expected Results: Should display only messages labeled Important.

Keywords: regression

I have a strong feeling that this was caused by the checkin for #125197,
specifically the change to mailWidgets.xml

I'm verifying that now...
yes, the change to mailWidgets.xml for bug #125197 was the cause.

trying to now to figure out why that change was necessary, and if there is
another way to do what shuehan was trying to do.
the fix for this will be in bug #202848

the fix was to back out the change to mailWidgets.xml, and then find a fix for
the problem that shuehan was fixing, which I've logged as bug #202848
Depends on: 202848

to test that bug #125197 is still ok, do an "any" search on "any name", and then
switch to an "all" search.

it should switch back to the default search for an "all" search, display name.

Verified Fixed. 

- Labels, Junk Status and Has Attachments now only have two criteria (is,
isn't). - Also checked the steps in comment 9 and switching to an "all" search,
then shows "Display Name".

"Has Attachments" does not work for me:
"Attachment Status" is "Has Attachments"

After selecting that, no mail appears.
(With "isn't" all mails appear)

Mails are on an UW IMAP Server.

Also having a rule for the Received Header (there are normally more than one!!!) 
does not work.
(e.g. Received contains pop.myprovider.com)

It looks like that all headers which are not standard header do not work at all.

Any ideas?
