Rules Mistake???

I have a client who receives encrypted zip files from her accountant.
These end up marked as virus due to the inability of the scanning
engines to unpack them. I'm trying to disable virus scanning for this
(only) sender when sending to this specific user.

In MailScanner.conf I have:

Virus Scanning = %rules-dir%/antivirus.rules

and in my anti-virus.rules

To:	lotsofclients at 	yes
To:	thisclient at	and From:
accountant at   no
To:	thisclient at 	yes
FromOrTo: 	default		no

However this doesn't seem to stop the scanning. 

Where have I gone wrong?
