Just found the solution, and it's simple.
AFTER you add a second condition, the "Apply rule if ALL conditions are met" statement at the top becomes clickable, allowing you to change it to "Apply rule if ANY condition is met." (That differs from the method sequencing given in Comcast Brett's aforementioned post.)
While I can see some logic there, it would probably be clearer if both options were available before condition entry begins. Indeed, I've noticed that the Help page on filters does not point out or illustrate the option to switch to "ANY" once a second filter is added (filtering is discussed in the second half of the article at https://www.xfinity.com/support/internet/spam-filt
Anyway, when it's working properly (as it seems to be now), the new Xfinity Connect email filtering system is among the best and most powerful. In fact, I like most of aspects of the new Connect except for some very unclear/misleading wording/layout in the Settings/Advanced section, notably with regard to Spam Filtering and even more so with regard to the "POP settings for Other Apps," where the option to let the other app tell the server whether to save or delete is oddly (and misleadingly) labeled simply "Delete."
I write some of my emails to Spanish-speaking friends and so I write in Spanish. Almost every word I write is then underlined in red telling me that it is incorrectly-spelled. All those red underlines are very annoying and I'd like to get rid of them. I tried going to Preferences, but there was nothing there to help me. Can anyone suggest how I might opt out of those red underlines?
I'm not so sure you can opt out of that function. However, your recipients won't see the red marks. I know that it's annoying seeing all of them. If you're on the new email [which I'm not] try looking under the Gear in the upper right corner of email and then go to Settings. I only use Firefox browser and I know that it has an automatic spelling checker which also underlines anything it thinks is misspelled. I just ignore it unless it shows I made a typographical error.
I have found that if I right click the mouse, like I am going to copy the text, it gives me a blue background, with white letters. Then it is no problem to read what is there. I tried to do it your way, but when I tried to copy the text, I found it was readable, without having to open another window. I wouldn't have found this work around without your suggestion. I guess we can call this problem answered. Thanks.

If you are still on the old email format, from the Inbox page open the address book, and on the landing page click on "Build Your Address Book". If you are on the new format, again from the Inbox page click on Address Book, and on that landing page click on Address Book in the left pane, and then on the "hamburger" icon to the right of it, then on Import.
On open e-mail page, above the column on the left, 'folders' is the box with the familiar 'search' and a magnifying glass in it, try to type a word in it and the box disappears, and a new box appears with only an 'X' in it! Type a word in it, and a column comes up with the word in it to choose, like 'in text' and other choices. Click on any one, and sometimes some old e-mails come up, or mostly the term 'none found" comes up, even though you know there are many e-mails that the word or phrase is in it. Other times when old e-mails come up without the word I typed, and no relationship seems to exist to that word or phrase.
In iOS, you need to set the password in two places------for the incoming server, and then again for the outgoing smtp server. Did you do that? If not, to change it for the smtp server;
go to "Settings" on the home screen, then scroll down to" Mail, Contacts, Calendars", click on the account, and then on the next screen tap the "account" again. Scroll down to "SMTP" and tap that. Then tap "smtp.comcast.net". On the next screen you will see the password. Change it and then tap "Done" in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Is that what's going on?
