Hi all,

I have a wierd problem with Outlook 2000.  I created a subfolder under inbox and a rule to move emails to that folder if they arrive from a specified list of people.  It works fine but emails that I send to those people also move to that folder instead of sent items!  It was working fine in Outlook 98.  Please help!

Not sure how you created the rule. May be doing this would help

Open Outlook
go to tools --> rules wizard
in the window that opens , Click "new"
Select " Start from a blank rule"
and then select "Check messages when they arrive"
Now continue from there.
Create the rule and then try checking now

Still the same.  When I reply to a message in my personal folder, the sent item also sits there!

Maybe you can run me through the rest of the rules wizard set up.

Super!  I realized only now that it was happening only to my replies.  Thanks Victor!
