I think it is impossible to specify multiple criteria, but have you
tried something like search Entire Message for "Gerben & keyword &
month," and then sorting by From or Date? The '&' works fairly well in
my experience, but YMMV.

I do this routinely by selecting multiple mailboxes in the drawer, then
entering my search criteria in the field; it's not lightning fast, but

Agreed; been there, done that. I pushed everything onto an IMAP server
from Outhouse Express to switch to Eudora, then the same when I
switched from Eudora to Mail.app. Not fun, and I didn't even bother
with some of the old elm/pine mailboxes that I had scattered around.
