Is there any way to modify the VIPs box to show all messages both TO and FROM a particular contact?

The VIP mailbox contains From e-mail only. I haven't found an official link from Apple stating this though.

+1 as I think you're right.. But I want you to be wrong! – RawFocus Aug 23 '13 at 14:02
I want me to be too, and if I am, I'll certainly correct it. But in practice, I've been unable to show TO: email in the VIP box. I can certainly see a use case for it. – Dave Aug 23 '13 at 14:04
