Does "first match" win on Content Filters?

If I define multiple content filters for a given outbound mail policy, would system stop looking at filters once a match is found on one of the content filters or should I force that by using a "final" action in my content filters?

I know "first match wins" apply to some other scenarios, but couldn't see a clear explanation to above question in section 6 of Config guide where content filters are defined (and testing with system did not clear that for me either).

Thanks.

Hello John,

An emaill being processed by the content filters or messages filters will continue down the list of  content/message filters until it hits the last filter or a 'final' action filter command.   If the email being processed needs to exit (by administrative choice), the filter it hits, should have a final action.  This only applies to certain conditions, where the administrator does not want the filter's last action to be overwritten by another filter down the pipeline.

cheers,

-Alvaro
