Hi Stef,

I prefer to exclude senders by IP address, since this is harder to spoof.
Even if the rule didn't allow selection by IP, then the 
To:  recipient at recipient.domain  no
line should ensure that the recipient gets all emails with HTML included.
This is the first thing I tried.

I get the feeling that the selection by recipient domain rule takes
precedence over all other rules.
