I couldn't find this addressed, so forgive me if this exists (and I simply don't know how to use it) or if it's already been brought up as a possible feature worth considering for your roadmap.

I use Airmail at work, and often have need to search for specific emails that do not contain my company's domain in the address. Additionally there are times when I need to search within a category of emails around a topic, that don't revolve around "[some phrase]".

Can I propose a "not", "exclude", or "without" operator for use in search that might look like any of the below to use with search?
