"with 'words' in the subject or body" won't find HTML

Rules wizard won't find the words in the list if they're HTML. Edit the email by changing from HTML to plain text, re-run the rule, and it finds the word.

How do I make OL2000 SP3 find the HTML?

It does for me and I am sure I haven't done any special tweaking.

Can you post one of the rules that isn't working.

Here's the rule that doesn't work with HTML:

Apply this rule after the message arrives
with 'valium' or 'prescription' in the subject or body
permanently delete it
except if from C Youngblood or Chris Walling
stop processing more rules

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Also your rule wizard file may be corrupted or parts of it may be. For testing try this

Locate your *.rwz file
if you are using Win2000 or XP then you should find it here

C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\*.rwz

and move the *.rwz to another folder for backup purposes.
Then recreate just that rule and see if it now works. Also this rule may be in conflict with other rules.

I'm running Windows98 2ED. I've experimented with running only the one rule with no difference. However, I've not tried recreating the rules from scratch. I'll test that idea next and let you know.

I did the test with no difference. Still didn't catch the offending word.

Below is the HTML source from that email with the word "Pinochle" substituted for the offensive noun. Perhaps the answer can be gleaned from this.
