outlook2k: inbox rule for CC (rather than "sent to" or "from")?

In the case where someone CCs a mailing list, I'd like to create a rule that checks for this, and files away the message to the right folder.

I'm referring to the part where you go:
Organize > Create a rule

and there's a drop down that says "sent to" and "from". Is there a way to add "CC" into it?

On outlook XP you choose tools->rules wizard->new->
check messages when they arrive -> next->
where my name is in the CC box.

The rest should be easy from there on in.

Actually my problem is not creating a rule for messages that are CC'd to me, but CC'd to a mailing list. There doesn't seem to be an option for it in the Rules Wizard.

BTW, I'm using Outlook 2000.

Well, if you're talking about a specific mailing list, you can click instead of in CC, sent to people or distribution list, and specify them.

Ahhh okay, that worked. I had to define a contact for the mailing list first, and then the "send to people or distribution list" actually means:
check the "to:" and "CC" field for the email address you specify.

Maybe they cut it out because it would be too wordy.
