Yeah... understood. I've been very successful in the many many searches that I have done before. Not sure why I found this one to be so difficult.
The trick did work, however I needed to create multiple filters to accomplish this since the seperating multiple emails by semi-colon wasn't working. This was necessary as I am also forwarding my crackberry.com emails to my gmail account.
Thank you again and I will try to spend more than 30 minutes on my searches for now on
