New Mail Notification Options

I have my Outlook Mail preferences set to display a message and produce a sound when new messages arrive.  I also have Rules in place to move certain messages (like Receipts) to a different folder.  I would like to turn off the Notification and Sound for those items.  Any way to do that?

You should untick the general notifications and let the rules handle the notifications.  This way you can have only those that you want to be notified.
Are you using Outlook 2000?

In Outlook 2000 click on Tools, options. Under preferences click on E-mail options and untick "Display a notification message when new mail arrives".

then click on Advanced E-mail Options and untick "Play a sound"

Yes -- Outlook 2000.

But I want to retain the notification message and sound for regular messages; I just want to turn them off for the receipts, etc. that the Rules move -- there doesn't seem to be an option in the Rules Wizard for that.  I've done a workaround (adding a different sound for the moved receipts), but that gets to be a bit annoying.

Thanks; I was trying to avoid that, but I guess it will have to suffice.  It will be tedious creating the new Rule(s), since I have many such Move rules.

Ever hopeful, I'll leave this question open another week -- and if I don't get a better answer by then, I'll give you the points.  Remind me with another Comment next Monday.
