Can I create a Rule with Or'd conditions?

I have started getting informational messages from various groups where the sender address looks something like this:
chapteradmin=abc.org@mail999.xyz99.lmnop.net
I think these are coming from mailing services like Mail Chimp. This makes it very difficult to make a rule to redirect these messages. Sometimes the real domain of the sender is somewhere in the sender's address (abc.org) and sometimes it's in the subject line.

Can I create a rule that will look for "abc.org" (or any other string) is either the sender's address or the subject line. If I code it in both places, it looks like it will only find a match if it is in both places. Please tell me that I don't have to create two rules.

Thanks

No, ORs are limited to the same condition. You can use a script to check for words in either. Ot you could use the rule to check for words in the header - it would have the sender address, reply to address, the subject and be able to capture all mail from abc.org.
