Is there a limit of how many email address can be in a rule?

Our CEO has a rule that is not working, this rule contains over 40 emails in it.  The rule states the all emails should go to a sub folder (that his assistant reviews) unless from a list of roughly 40 email addresses.  I have seen email from that group of 40 come in and be moved to the sub folder instead of remaining in his Inbox, thus the rule is not working.  However when I run the rule manually it works.  This rule is on 24/7.  Is it possible that there is a limit on the # of email addresses a rule can contain?  Would breaking the rule in smaller groups of emails fix the problem? So instead of 1 rule with 40 emails, do 4 rules with 10 emails per rule?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have seen email from that group of 40 come in and be moved to the sub folder instead of remaining in his Inbox, thus the rule is not working. That means that a RULE moved those emails to a folder and that rule that ran has the stop processing further rules enabled.

if you run all rules does the rule work? or only if you run only that rule?

If I ran that specific rule manually it works.  We have other rules as well and they work but do not contain as many emails.  
All rules contain the "stop processing more rule" in them to prevent duplicate emails from being created.  So what do you suggest?

move that rule to the top or further upward.. Somewhere you have a rule that matches the criteria and it is being executed first.
