It's by deisgn.  Workaround it by typing your signature in the AutoReply text box portion of the assistant.

The other workaround would be to use rules to reply using a specific template, which you would create and include your signature. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;248830&Product=out2K

Sorry, I am confused by your answer; this has nothing to do with sending a reply. Let me rephrase what I wrote to help clarify, thanks.

When i first get everything setup, the account delivered all mail to inbox, accept spam which was thrown in the junk mail folder.

Howerver, I have 2 email accounts, and i want all the mail from one of those accounts to be put directly into a sub folder in the inbox. Howerver, when i do this, any junk mail associated with that account gets put in there as well, instead of being sent to the junk mail folder like it did before the rule. There appears to be no "exception" which says if the mail is classed as junk so no ide ahow to change that.

AFAIK, there is an issue where the rules are processed first, then the junk mail.

Ok, thanks.

I actually have another message rule problem, if i move an email twice using two different rules, the 2nd movement copies the message and dosen't move it. Any ideas?

Mob-bomCommented:
You move a message twice from the inbox?
If you are trying to apply to rules to one email in the inbox, try this:

Rule 1
When a message arrives
(Trigger condition here)
Move -a copy- to Move1Folder

Rule 2
When a message arrives
(Trigger condition here)
Move to Move2Folder

Otherwise, I don't understand your question, could you rephrase if I don't understand?

I am doing two filters, one is to filter on the account details and one is to filter on the subject. The email should end up in either a folder for the account or a folder for the subject, howerver despite both rules setting to be move, the email ends up in both folders. I can, i believe fix this by insuring that the subject rule is run first and then preventing further rules from being processed, still seems strange to me.

>>> then preventing further rules from being processed,

That, also, is by design.  It assume you want all rules to run when the conditions are met, so by including "Stop processing more rules" and putting your rules in order of run preference, it ensures the wanted results.

I do see how to solve this, but it still dosen't make sense (and istn't how outlook express works).

I have an email land in the inbox:

a) Rule a is set to move the email to another folder. This should happen
b) Rule b now moves the email to a further folder. This should be run after rule a has completed, not simulatenously.

Thanks for your help :)
