Rules Wizard changes rule

I am using Outlook 2002 with all current patches, and I 
have one html account and three POP accounts (let's call 
the POP accounts A, B and C). 'A' is my main account and 
it's messages go to the Inbox. 'B' is a secondary account 
and collects a lot of spam. 'C' is my work account.

I want to route all incoming messages from the 'B' 
account to the 'B' folder and all the incoming messages 
from the 'C' account to the 'C' folder.

I have rules that do this this simple task, only when 
saving the 'C' rule, the Rules Wizard ALWAYS re-writes it 
to put messages from the 'B' account into the 'C' folder.

As the 'C' rule is listed before the 'B' rule, the result 
is that I get all the junk messages from the 'B' account 
put in the 'C' folder, and all the messages from the 'C' 
account stay in the Inbox.

I've tried deleting the rule and recreating it, but that 
doesn't help. How do I get the Rules Wizard to leave the 
rule set to the 'C' account instead of switching on its 
own to the 'B' account?

Thank you for the reply, but obviously I didn't make 
myself clear. After I write this simple rule and save it, 
Outlook is self-editing the rule and changing the target 
POP account from the third account in the list to the 
second account ('C' to 'B'). The rule is then applied to 
the second POP account(B)rather than the intended third 
account(C). Stopping the rule processing doesn't help 
this situation.

I've even tried renaming the POP accounts to switch the 
alphabetical listing and the rule is always self-edited 
to the second account. And yes, when I edit the account 
names I fix the problem with what was the third account 
by making it the second account, only now the same style 
rule for what was the second account and now the third 
account is screwed-up in an identical manner.

By any chance is the Rules Wizard limited to using only 
two POP accounts in Outlook 2002?

it is to delete all the email accounts and reinitialize them. Except

Today's Total Change (but not a Q re mutual fund updates)
In M06, Portfolio Manager, the total shown at the bottom of view as Today's Total Change does not, in fact, reset to $0 at the start of each day.

Limits on rules in Outlook
Does anyone know if there is a limit on the number of rules that you can have in Outlook Mail? I have always had about 15 active rules, but I just added about 10 more and got the following error: "One or more rules could not be uploaded to Exchange server and have been deactivated.

Customer Level Prices Changing After Additional Items Added to A Sale
Hello Ladies & Gents, Here's something wierd I have come across. If you define price levels for an item and then on the POS select a customer with a corresponding level and ring up that item, the item will show up with the level price and the bold font. However, if you ring up additional items that don't have price levels defined, the the price of the first item goes back to regular and the font changes back to normal! However, if you ring up all your items first and then select the customer, then items with price levels will be adjusted accordingly. Obviously, this is not...

Distributing Changes in Workbook
Hi, This is a newbie question. Suppose a worksheet has been developed and it was distributed to a number of people who have been entering data into their own copies of the workbook. If a change is made in the 'master' worksbook to VBA code or a cell formula to fix a problem, what is the best way to distribute the VBA / formula changes to the different users while allowing them to keep the data in their copies of the workbook?
