Colorizing emails sent to alternate domain

Hi there everyone,

I am using Exchange 2003 Server with Outlook 2003.  I have two domains and 
receive email from both domains in the same mailbox.

I want to use the "Organize" feature in Outlook 2003 to apply a different 
color to emails sent to a specific domain.  For some reason this doesn't 
work.  I can setup everything under "Tools > Organize > Using Colors" but 
when I type in the email address I want to apply coloring to it just 
resolved to my name.

joepublic@mycompany.com < normal
joepublic@mycompany.ca <  green (or some other color)'

However both of these just resolve to "Joe Public" in the "organize using 
color" tool.  When I send an email (from an outside Gmail account) to my 
Exchange mailbox no special coloring is applied.

Please let me know how I can resolve this.

Thanks,

The Fish.

Thanks!  Actually, reading your question just solved one of my problems - how 
to apply color formatting.  I wanted to mark a certain person (myself [and my 
several email accounts]) in blue, so they stood out and I could quickly do 
whatever I wanted to with them - read them, delete them, etc.  

In my Inbox, I clicked on tools, then organize, then using colors.  I typed 
in each way my name and/or email address appeared, and then assigned a color 
to it.  They appeared to have "taken", because they are now blue in my inbox. 
 

While the "Ways to Organize Inbox" is still open, you click on "automatic 
formatting" in the upper right-hand corner.  Your choices will be listed in 
the resulting "rules for this view".  

I have Outlook 2007.  I don't know how different that might be from your 
situation.

you can't use organize with email addresses, you need to do in the views 
dialog

Downloading Old Emails
Outlook (2003) keeps downloading emails from my account that it has already downloaded. I have changed any settings and I've checked the settings I do have and I can't figure out why it does this. I have it set to retain emails on the server for 7 days. But it keeps downloading the same emails over and over again. At one point, it was close to 150 emails. I went on to the server and deleted them. But it's still doing it for the new emails I received after that. It just started doing this a couple weeks ago. It did it once and then behaved normally until a cou...
