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 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.

I know this is an Outlook ng. but I'm using Outlook Express and can't seem

Then you should ask in an Outlook Express newsgroup.

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
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

Recently encountered a problem opening Word and Excel
attachments in Outlook. After clicking on the attachment,
it takes a long time for the file to open, about 30 - 45
seconds when normally it opens a couple of seconds. I ran
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 have a system in place that requires messages from a certain account to be
in plain text format. Those messages are retrieved from a mailbox via a POP3
connection, so I set the specific mailbox's message format to plain text
under the protocol options.
Up until upgrading to SP2, it worked as it should, stripping the HTML out of
all messages. Now it will only do so if there are no embedded images in the
e-mail. Without those images, it's fine, but with them it will always
deliver the message as both HTML and plain text, messing up our software.

One possibility to do this is using our Add-On "RelatedDocuments for MS CRM
This Add-On creates for every CRM-object(Opport.,Contact,..) you want a

You can then create default categoris for each Object(like folders) and add
any type of
files to that categoris(folders).
