Duplicate Emails After Rules (Outlook 2003)

I have a bunch of rules set up – and I’m getting a lot of duplicate emails.  Can someone help?  Since rules are supposed to happen in the order shown – I would think an email that matches a rule would be moved, but then not applied to the rules below it…

---
Apply this rule after the message arrives
with someone@somewhere.com in the recipient’s address
move it to the “To This Person” folder
---

But then below that I have rules that contradict this.  They say, for example…

---
Apply this rule after the message arrives
from one@two.com
move it to the “From This Person” folder
---
Apply this rule after the message arrives
with somewhere.com in the recipient’s address
move it to the “Somewhere.com Catchall” folder
---

So why is this not working the way I want it to.  I guess I could start creating 20 “exceptions” on each rule – but that is a nightmare and a complete mess.  Am I missing something simple here?

Greetings, rebies !

The rules are creating the duplicates.  After a rule has been applied, select Stop Processing More Rules. Check the actions that the Stop Processing More Rules applies to.

Best wishes!

That looks to be it.  I'm double checking and testing now, but await the points to be awarded.

Thanks.
