I am just answering IW here as I am not clear about Gene's problem,
and as there are some 'technical' suggestions here, I hope my 'novice' 
suggestion is not out of place or misses the point; and if it does, I 

IW, have you tried using the conditions....
o if *any* of the conditions rather than
o if *all* of the conditions   (default setting)

and make additional conditions not just using
"if email adddress *from* = x " but also
"if email adddress *cc* = x "
'from" or 'to' but also using 'cc' ?
Some senders 'cc' not 'to' you?

I hope this helps.
