Direction: address-pattern and Direction: address-pattern result
So for example:

From: domain.com and to: customer.com store,deliver

This could be used in, for example, Non-Spam Actions, and would cause
non-spam mail going from domain.com to customer.com to be stored in the
quarantine as well as being delivered.
