Yes, I did read all the pages about the rules. The problem is that there
are lots of rules that you could make for every possibility. I've been
trying to play around with sendmail for a while but couldn't get anything
done because of the extremely hard to understand syntax.

I think indeed one or two example rules with wildcards like
* and *@* would be helpful especially if
you're trying to set things up the first time. If you get the hang of it
it sort of appears obvious but until that time you just get frustrated
with things being (not) marked as they should and trying to figure out why
