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

...Sent Message Rule
I know this is an Outlook ng. but I'm using Outlook Express and can't seem
to create a rule that copies my sent messages to a particular folder. 2
e-mail addresses in one Account. I want to send the sent messages from the
Sent Items folder to another.

Then you should ask in an Outlook Express newsgroup.
...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.
Why don't the message rules work? I keep making messages to block the word
Viagra (any combination of spelling variations) and numerous other words, and
delete the messages. I have over 400 rule, most about Viagra, and NONE of
them are working.
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.

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

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

so kind and friendly as to share with me an example of how to get it

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.

No, that is not possible without some custom scripting of your own.
There is an add-in from Sperry Software which can do this though. It's

I don't know what version of Outlook you are using. In Outlook 2003, go to Tools | Rules & Alerts | Options. There you will find a dialogue box allowing you to import rules from a previous version of Outlook.

As far as I can tell, a rule cannot detect the format of a received message.
