OMG.. I’m so tickled I’m literally giggling all over the place. That 
was SO EASY!

Well sort of. Not being a programmer I misinterpreted the directions a 
bit so will add this clarification for future readers of this thread.

The line that will have the from etc still needs to have conditions =
The condition you are doing - in my case from.. Etc needs to be in 

I know that this is a natural for the programmers but I had to think 
about it.

I’m SO HAPPY - thank you. And yes got a few more conditions I’ll 
build in to manage the other emails.
