I have a filter that filters out bugmail into separate folders (don't we all?),
and I noticed that if I have a filter that matches "To or CC contains
someaddr@someplace.something" *and* "Sender contains" this filter will match emails where someone
forwards a bugzilla email that would've matched that filter.

This is wrong, we shouldn't be looking at email headers in the message body when
matching filter rules...

message headers.

Johnny, I tried this (forwarded as attachment a bugzilla message, and bcc'ed
myself) - my personal filter didn't fire (messages to or cc me), nor did my
bugzilla filters. This was with Pop3, though I think the same would work with imap.

this sounds like a bug that was fixed in might have been rkent, or maybe asuth. I'll try to look at the checkin logs...

I was thinking of  Bug 513277 - not sure this is the same or not...
It probably needs retesting. The ToOrCc AFAICT is not implemented with a boolean search term, which means I doubt that bug 513277 fixed it.
