A rule that places a new email in a sub Folder doesnt get displayed

Create a folder; Create a rule that moves new mails to that folder;  Happy 
as larry.  When a new mail arrives, outlook shows a blue numeric value next 
to the folder to indicate unread messages.

However, if you add another folder to the folder created above, ie a sub 
folder and create a rule to move new email, you have to have the tree fully 
extended to be informed of a new email.

Is there a way to see if an new email has been sent to a sub folder without 
having the tree list expanded?

Cheers

Phil

Either \ or conditions in rules
Is it possible in Outlook 2003 to create a rule with either \ or conditions, eg If the message has certain words in the subject line OR if there are certain words in the body of the message? As far as I can see, you can only create conditions linked with AND. In that scenario, you would need to create two separate rules, each with = the same actions.=20 --=20 Sue Mosher, Outlook MVP Author of Configuring Microsoft Outlook 2003 http://www.turtleflock.com/olconfig/index.htm and Microsoft Outlook Programming - Jumpstart for=20 Administrators, Power Users, and Developers ...

Dear Exchange people, We are using Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007. I have emails that come in every day that need to be moved to an Exchange public folder based on words in the emails subject.

Images Not displaying in emails
All of a sudden when someone send me an email with a pasted screen print in it or even a signature image in their signature box, it does not display. It has a red X and says Picture (Device Independent Bitmap). I have gone into the options to make sure it downloads all pictures and that setting was never checked so it should have all along. The funny thing is that when I reply, it shows the images. Just when I open to read the email it doesn't display. There is no message up in the toolbar to download images or anything like that either like I have seen as I am trying to research this...

Some of them move to an other folder, where they are useless. Is there any way to save/restore those rules in order to avoid rekeying everything again and again? Where are they located? Are they accessible? Thanks for your help, Bibif they are stored in views - did you change views on the folder where you lost them?

Emulate Out of Office Assistant in a rule?

I would use the Out of office assistant on the mailboxes, but the subject text "Out of Office:" seems to be static which wouldn...

Can't get my head around this query..help!
I have a table that records when a form is returned (by year, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11), every company in the table is sent a form. When the business returns the form, their record is updated with the year and the date when it was returned. I am trying to figure out how to enter criteria into a query so that it filters what companies have not yet sent in a form for 2010/11 without displaying previous years records (if applicable, e.g. they may have only joined us in 2010/11) Ideally, a "date_form_sent" would have been extremely helpful in this circumstance, but ...

This seems to occur randomly for no particular reason. If I subsequently run the rule manually, the messages are then deleted. Is there a way to stop this? ...
