Yes - this is how it is set.

This as well. I have it set to look at both cc and to. As i said, it
seems to work most of the time. But for example. 3 days ago I sent 3
separate emails to 3 separate people listed on the filter. Nothing
fancy - straight To: so and so at domain.com

Usually they are filtered to my correct archive. This time no. None of
them. I tried manually filtering. Nothing happened. The To: headers
match my filter. There were no copies, nothing unusual. Yet emails I
sent to those exac t same addresses LATER DID go through to the right

 I might add
another odd occurrence is that every few days emails I have filtered
into different folders will suddenly show as "unread" (even one *I*
sent) in the folder. So if I send an email to family X, or newslist Y,
2 or 3 days later it might suddenly show in the filtering folder as
unread! It seems to be random. I have NO filters ANYWHERE set to change
anything to "unread".  And it is random. Sometimes days go by without it
happening. Sometimes several emails at a time will suddenly show as
unread. It is not a big deal and I am not going to waste time trying to
work it out unless someone knows why it happening.
