How can we set a rule and then set the condition that the rule should NOT apply to people in our address book?

    This is easy! If you are using OL2002, along the way you create the rule (Next > Next > ...), there should have the "Add any exceptions" section before you reach the "Finish". So when you create a rule, and when you reach this "exceptions" step, you just check the "except if sender is in specified Address book" (should be the last row in the exception rule list) to exclude the people in your address book. Then check which address book you are using.

    Doing so, this rule will apply EXCEPT those in your address book. Is this what you're looking for?

    (Or if you want to exclude this rule to some specific people only, you can check "except if from people or distribution list" or check the "except with specific words in the sender's address")

    By the way, you don't need to create a rule (say rule A) to stop another rule (rule B). The "Exception" will do the job already.
