I am trying to combine two filters together but can't seem too get it working

Filter 1:
(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(!userPrincipalName=ZZ*)(!userPrincipalName=#*)(!userPrincipalName=zz*)(|(mail=*domainX.nl)(mail=*domainY.nl))))

Filter 2:
(&(mailnickname=*)(objectCategory=group)(|(proxyAddresses=*domainX.nl)(proxyAddresses=*domainY.nl)))

Combined filter:
(&(&(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(!userPrincipalName=ZZ*)(!userPrincipalName=#*)(!userPrincipalName=zz*)(|(mail=*domainX.nl)(mail=*domainY.nl)))(&(objectCategory=group)(|(proxyAddresses=*domainY.nl)(proxyAddresses=*domainX.nl))))

I am clueless at the moment as too what i going wrong when combining the two so any help is more then welcome

How many domains do you have? If only those two, then checking for email address can be changed to mail=* and proxyaddresses=*, that alone with speed up it up greatly.

Assuming that either of those are valid as is for inclusion in the list, you need to use an or filter not the and that you have currently.
(|(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(!userPrincipalName=ZZ*)(!userPrincipalName=#*)(!userPrincipalName=zz*)(|(mail=*domainX.nl)(mail=*domainY.nl))(&(mailnickname=*)(objectCategory=group)(|(proxyAddresses=*domainX.nl)(proxyAddresses=*domainY.nl))))

I'll check tommorow but no these two are not our only domains , the goal is too make an adress list of just those 2 e-mail domains users & groups.

Nope no luck I am afraid, now I am getting DNS records hidden users groups everything.
I only need the users and distri groups show in the list..
