Subject Syntax question
Date Wed, 30 Dec 2015 20:46:08 GMT

I'm trying to configure a search that captures a term but excludes search 
results that contain that same term if the term only appears in proximity 
to certain other terms.  See the below example.  I want to get search 
results for emails that contain the word "privilege".  But I don't want to 
get hits if privilege only appears within a certain proximity of a 
specified phrase (such as within the sample confidentiality footer text 
below).  Stated differently, a document should be captured in search 
results if it contains the word privilege, independent and regardless of 
whether it appears in the email confidentiality footer--but not if it only 
appears in the footer.

Here is how it would look in dtSearch.  I'm just wondering how to 
accomplish the same thing with Lucene. 

Footer text:
“… protected by attorney-client or other privilege.  If you received this 
e-mail in error….”

((privilege) not w/4 (“received this e-mail in error”))

Thanks in advance!
