OL2003 Rules Query

Hi

Can anyone confirm please the best way to do the following using OL2003 clients rules:

1) Save incoming mail email addresses to the Contacts folder (create a new contact if not already exists)

2) Move messages to a folder where the subject line does NOT contain the word "RE:" (i.e. negative filter)

Many thanks

Rob

ROb,

a) As far as I can see adding an email address to contact using rules is not possible.
However, you can use this

b) Wont it be easy to move the emails with RE in the subject to a seperate folder.. IT should solve your purpose of filtering emails with RE and without RE..

when you create a new rule , start from a blank rule and under specific words in subject give RE and run

I think you should be able to use the above VBA code to add email address automatically in the rules wizard

I believe Ash (sunray_2003) probably already provided you with what you need; this may supplement that.  I've made many either/or and exclusionary statement to try and fix these intrusions, but all in all, these have been somewhat helpful to me.

Be sure to go to http://www.officeudpate.com and get updated filters....
However, this is only the third such update since Outlook 2003 debuted. The new spam filters can be downloaded from the Microsoft website or via its Office Update service.

1st, how does one globally select all of the rules with one keystroke and 2nd, how do you keep the rules on so that they work all of the time?

Thanks!

Dear Merritt

The idea with EE is that you post questions in your own thread and offer points for answers rather than hijacking someone else's thread. You are also far more likely to get responses.

Thanks

Please donot post here asking your own questions. If you have the same issue as the asker of this queston , then subscribe to the thread , listen to it , may be you can even help .
Asking your own questions will not only confuse the asker but also make experts job tougher.
