Rules Wizard; categories

Hello,

Is there a way to automatically strip received messaged of 
their categories?  People have already assigned a category 
to a message but I want it changed.  I realise I can 
assign my own category (i.e using the Rules Wizard to 
assign every recieved mail as e.g "No" category), but is 
there a way to strip them completely?

Many thanks

G

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 this? IE main is Internet. Mail sent to web@here.com should go to Internet but then get moved to the 'WEB' folder based on the web@here.com address. But Internet is showing in the recpient field. ...

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 ...

Color rule
Hi I would like to use colors to change an email when received from 1 of a group of like 60 people. (All 60 senders I would like to color their email when recieved) I am limited by the number of color rules that I am allowed to put into place. 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. I have tried to assign category through a rule on the list of these people, but it will not allow me to upload to the exchange ...

Message Rules
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.

How do I set up Server Rule to move Emails to a an Exchange 2007 public 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 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 it? Thanks in...

Emulate Out of Office Assistant in a rule?
I want to be able to emulate the OoO assistant in a server side rule, specifically I want it to only reply once to each recipient. Currently we have several customer service and tech support mailboxes that have server side reply rules that reply with a template directing them to our website for support. However, this rule EASILY gets caught up in loops to the point where I have to check it daily and turn off the rule temporarily to break the loop. I would use the Out of office assistant on the mailboxes, but the subject text "Out of Office:" seems to be static which wouldn...

Rules in Error
I have a number of rules in place to reduce spam by permanently deleting certain messages upon their arrival based on content. But every day the "Rules in Error" window pops up with the message "You don't have appropriate permission to perform this operation" and the applicable rule is deactivated from that point on. 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? ...

Outlook2003: Display rules disappear (Tools/Organize/Colors/Automatic..)
Hi all, 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, Bibif they are stored in views - did you change views on the folder where you lost them? The best way to keep them is to copy the current view or make a new view and set the rules. -- Diane Poremsky [MVP - Outlook] ...

(Neither of the accounts in question is the default account) Try as I might I cannot get Outlook to accept the account I wish to use the rule with. It is a valid account and receives mail without a probl...

rules change after closing rules wizard
I have recently installed Outlook 2002 (upgrading from Outlook 2000) and imported my OE mail and address book. My OE message rules did not import, although the dialog box message said that they did. When I create the rules again with the Rules Wizard to have messages from a specified account move to the same named folder, some of them look fine when I click "OK" and then, when I reopen the Rules Wizard, I find that the account name has changed to another account (always the same one).

How to disable the "Rules in Error" pop-up in Outlook 2003
Hi all, I used to set dozens of rules for filtering my emails, delete or dispatch them to specific directories and it used to working fine for years till last week. Now, for a reason I ignore (and I have no time to investigate !), I get 10 to 20 "Rules in Error" pop-up per days. The strange thing is the rules seem to work fine anyway because the filtered email are destroyed as requested in the rule. The bad thing is I have to click on the "Close" button if I want the pop-up to disappear. If I have 20 stacked pop-ups and even more (one hundred if I get back from holidays), ...

tracking double categories for tax purposes
Now and then I encounter an expense that is tax deductable in some manner but I think of it personally in a different manner. For example, being unemployed one can buy new clothes to look good for a job interview and this is tax deductable. I could create a category called "job search" and put the expense under that so that at the end of the year it will show up on tax reports. But, I personally prefer to lump this together with clothing expenses in my own reports. What is the best way to track the same expense in two different ways? -Jeff Look up 'classification'...
