Problem with Outlook express rules with multiple accounts

My client (a small real estate company with 12 Realtors) wants to use OE 6.0. I have set up 1 identity with 12 accounts and created a Mail rule that states any email with....... in the to: field will be sent to the...... folder. I have created 12 different folders so any email that comes to the common inbox is sent to the corresponding folder. Everything works fine until the office administrator sends an office wide email to all users. The last address on the list gets 12 emails and no one else gets any. This is only an issue on the one common computer in the office. All remote users get their email fine. Is there a work around for this and is this a reasonable solution for my client.
They also have Outlook available but would rather use OE
Thank You

Hi,

Try Thunderbird
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/

It allows you to run multiple accounts using the same thunderbird and allows for each account their own individual Inbox, Sent

Download + Install Thunderbird
Don't Import anything.
Setup the 1st account
Enter the Server Information POP Incoming server
Uncheck the box for Use Global Inbox so each will has its own directory mail box.
Complete the setup don't download message yet

Click Tools >> Account Settings >> 
Click Add Account  and repeat for the all the accounts

Import the Messages from OUTlook Express
It will be imported into a Folder called Outlook Express Mail
Go to each user mailbox in here Select All their messages and Right Click >> Move to >>> to the Respective User Thunderbird directory mailbox

Hope you find it useful
