No, Im using the GUI and what you recommend won't work, because "all" of
the additional other conditions need to fit, while "any" of the CC, To,
X-..." conditions needs to fit.

Anyway, my bad, I missed that I don't need to to filter "All" accounts,
but I can just use a "single" account instead.

I suspect one minor issue. It likely will work for incoming mails, but
if I apply the filter to mails that were received in the past, it likely
won't work, when selecting a "single" account.

I'll test ASAP and report back.
