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

...rules based on recipient address
We have one mailbox that has different email addresses that point to it. We
have within this mailbox folders. Depending on what email address mail was
sent to we want rules to move them into the relevent folder. Outlook and/or
Exchange shows the name of the account in the 'to' feild so that our rules do
not work as they are based on where the email was sent. how can we get over
IE main is Internet. Mail sent to email@example.com should go to Internet but
then get moved to the 'WEB' folder based on the firstname.lastname@example.org address. But
Internet is showing in the recpient field.
I removed an account in WLM, and lost a lot of message.

Please help me.
If this was a pop3 account, then no. Removal of an account in WLM deletes the account and all stored messages from one's hard
To remove an account, one has to answer yes to a prompt for deletion. WLM's prompt explaining the deletion could be improved upon
making it much clearer on the impact.

I would like to use colors to change an email when
received from 1 of a group of like 60 people. (All 60

I am limited by the number of color rules that I am

I am unable to create one rule for the group of users as
well, as I get an error and outlook closes on me.
There is probably a very simple script that can be
written but I am not that familiar with writing those.

Why don't the message rules work? I keep making messages to block the word

What exactly are you specifying? See http://www.insideoe.com/tips/rules.htm
The rules are the same in WinMail except they added the junk folder.

Looking around the google-web, there are heaps of pop3 components you can
buy for access and retrieving/send an email from a pop3 server.
Is there a way to do this without having to buy a third party component ? I
just want to read emails from my ISP server, and process the attachments.

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. I set up a rule
in Outlook 2003 to move it to the public folder automatically and it
usually works when Outlook is open, but I need it to just run on the
server and not require Outlook to be open to run it. Would anyone be
so kind and friendly as to share with me an example of how to get it
to work on the server and not require the Outlook client to process

Some help needed re rules created in Tools/Organize/Colors/Automatic..:
Those rules disappear randomly and without obvious reason. 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,
they are stored in views - did you change views on the folder where you lost
The best way to keep them is to copy the current view or make a new view and
set the rules.
