Rules-Outlook 2003-"on this machine only"
When I specify that I want to send a copy of all messages that I send in a
specific account...i get the added cindition "on this machine only". I copy
my pst file from machine a and b...I uderstand that I have to check to be
sure that all rules are active after I copy from machine...but how do I get
away from this unselected condition. Exactly the same thing happens when I
specify that all messages that are received via a specific account be sent
to a folder.
...On This Machine Only
Everytime I create a rule from a message, it automatically selects "On This
Machine Only" - however, the ending result is, that the rule doesn't work.
How can I reset this, so that it [On This Machine Only] is NOT automatically
Are you working on an Exchange account or POP3?
Version of Outlook?
Exact rule that you try to create?
Any more rules configured?

"magmike" <mike.kl...Explanation of "on this machine only" in rules
In rules and alerts, the option exists to apply rules "on this machine
only". Does this have any significance or use for a POP mail user?

For a POP user, it probably has no significance.

I use Outlook 2003. I have several rules to sort incoming mail. What
effect does the condition "on this machine only" have on incoming

It means it's a client-side rule and will run only when Outlook is open on
that specific computer. Some rules can be server-side rules when you use
Outlook in conjunction with Exchange. In that case, the rule c..."On this machine only"
When I create a rule from an open message, the Rules Wizard automatically activates the "On this machine only" option. When I view/edit the rule from the Tools menu, it shows the rule applies "(For other machine)". If I leave the option activated, the rule doesn't work on my computer
First of all, to get a resulf of "For other machine" when "On this machine only" is selected seems contridictory to me. Can anyone logically explain what is going on here

Prevents running the rule when a user wanders to a different machine and
logs on over there under their own username on the same domain. That's
my understanding of it.
