Mine looks very similar but I have 3 word combinations that need to be 
near each other with ".{1,30}" between them to try to be a little 
flexible on the sentences without FPs.  I think my problem was the word 
"info" was in the middle of the 3 words and that was matching way too 
much so I removed that.

Now I have used a meta rule to limit it to O365 outbound servers and 
will let this ride a while to make sure it's a little more conservative 
with fewer FPs.
