How Do I Get More Than One Mail Address To a Smart Mailbox?

I am trying to get more than one mail address to go to one smart mailbox.
i can get one address but when i add another address all email disappears. when i delete one then the emails reappear.

I am using “from” “contains” then the “email address” from each sender.
I have tried using just names and that does not work either.

    My guess is that you are adding two lines to your Smart Mailbox like this:
    From, Contains, first@example.com
    From, Contains, second@example.com
    Is that right?
    If you notice above that it shows:
    Contains messages that match “all” of the following conditions:
    So the logic is correct. The email needs to match both conditions. It needs to come from first@example.com and from second@example.com. That’s impossible, since the email only comes from one or the other, never both.
    So just change the “all” to “any.” Then the Smart Mailbox will show you messages that come from the first OR the second — it only needs to match one of those. That’s the logic difference between All and Any.
