Sorry to confuse you; both aspects of the message should lead to the message
staying intact. I.e. I know the source domain of the emails and I know the
recipient for them. These are reports generated by a web server that always
go to the same recipient. The HTML stripping makes them all but undecipherable.
I also think that the rules are applied in order but this just doesn't seem
to be the case; the first rule should cause the message to be exempted from
HTML stripping but it is still stripped.
