Sent To:Domain Rule ?

How can I create a rule where:
IF mail is "Sent To" a Domain "Move To Folder" ?

I've tried using:
Sent To= "*@domain.com"

but it doesn't work :-(

I also tried "with specific words in the receipient's address" = "domain.com"
But this is a client only rule, and will only run when outlook is open... but I am on an Exchange Server and I'd rather have it run all the time (with out outlook being open).

Any idea's ?

Thanks,
-Chris

Hi basskozz,

The first thing to point out is that there is no concept of wildcards in Outlook rules.  So "*@domain.com" would never work.  I'm not sure you can build a rule that will do this.  Typically the way to check for a domain is to use the "with specific words in the recipient's address" or "with specific words in the sender's address".  If you're in an Exchange environment, then the messages likely have an X.400 address, not an SMTP address.  You can try the "with specific words" route and see if that does it.  If not, then maybe I can help you adjust that rulr to check and X.400 address.

Cheers!

BlueDevilFan,

Thanks for the input... I've already tried "with specific words" but it's a client only rule (meaning it will only run when outlook is open), and I am on an exchange server so this is not a preferable route...

Can you please expand on "rule to check X.400 address" ?
Thanks

basskozz,

> Can you please expand on "rule to check X.400 address" ?
I can, but it isn't going to help.  It still uses the "with specific words", I was just going to alter the words to check an X.400 address.  Without being able to use a "with specific words" condition, I don't think this is going to be possible.  Perhaps if you told me a bit more about what you're trying to accomplish I could suggest something.
