To my opinion you have two options:

either you test if SENDTO is set after the first case and only process
the second case if SENDTO is empty (if SENDTO empty then case
"$CIDNUMBER" in ...). I would also set SENDTO="" before the case
structure to be sure it works as expected, unless SENDTO is already set
before ...

It might be also possible to change the order of the cases, first test
for CIDNUMBER and set to default if not found and secondly overwrite
this if SENDER is known. However this option really depends on what you
want and could still be erroneous. So check if it works.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
With kind regards,
