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 firstname.lastname@example.org should go to Internet but
then get moved to the 'WEB' folder based on the email@example.com address. But
Internet is showing in the recpient field.

Hello - We use Outlook with Exchange Server at work (I'm a user). I'm on a
laptop. If I connect wirelessly via VPN then start Outlook, all works as
expected. But when I go to my desk, disable wireless (and VPN), and go
hardwire, while keeping Outlook open, then after Windows reconnects, I get
my mail messages but if I try to create a Calendar event, I do not see my
availability (ie, I'm always displayed as being free even when I have other
appts). I've also learned that others also do not correctly see my
availability. But if I look in my Calendar I can clearly see ...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

...Using word as editor for outlook issue
One of my users is having issues with using word as the editor in outlook
when replying to aol.com messages.
Basically she is not able to use word as an editor for aol emails that are
sent to her.
She receives a message that "Word is set to be your e-mail editor. However,
Word is unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as outlook.
The Outlook e-mail editor will be used instead."
Is there anyway to use Word as the editor to reply back to aol.com users?
It's just really weird that it only happens when she replies back to aol
users and word works perfectly ...Sent Message Rule

Recently encountered a problem opening Word and Excel

it takes a long time for the file to open, about 30 - 45

virus software and none were found. If I save the file to
disk and the open it up through Word or Excel, it opens
normally. All other computers in the company are fine.
Does anybody have an idea of what may be causing this?

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

I have a customer who is using Windows Live Mail (WLM).
He has 142 441 files that take 13.3Gb.
He keeps on loosing contacts everytime he quits WLM. In addition, He uses
the signature feature to preprogram replies to his emails. With WLM when you
reply, they all disappear and only the default signature remains. Finally,
everytime he starts WLM, it is very slow because it scans his 142 441 files
all the time.
So I recommended to use Outlook. However, it is limited to 2Gb when we try
to import data from WLM.
Can you recommend a solution?

Is there any way to save/restore those rules in order to avoid rekeying

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
