So we get 1 hit on the sender user1 at and another one at the
recipient where users7 matches the wildcard.

So what happens with an extra line on top:
From: * AND To: *@domain 1M

Rulesets should be handled based on the first hit.

Also make absolutely sure you did not past in any odd character. I prefer
to use tabs exclusevely in the rules files. But cutting and pasting may
convert tabs to spaces. So when in doubt make sure you type in the proper
lines to test with.

On first glance your file seems to match the documentantion on

But looks can be rather deceitful.
