Creating issues based on the sender's email address

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Creating issues and comments from email

I would like to be able to create a "Bug" in a specific project whenever an email is sent to JIRA from a certain email address. Whenever JIRA receives an email from anyone else an issue of type "Task" is created. In order for this to work I need to be able to filter based on the sender's email address.
