Way to open Outlook 2003 without rules

Hello, there is a command line switch to run Outlook without rules but it sounds like it will delete them as well.

Is there a way to open Outlook without rules but will not delete them??  I'd like to test to see if the client side rules are causing the delivery of duplicate mails. .. Thx in advance.

Actually, one of the most common things I have seen for Duplicates being delivererd, is that you have not set the Stop processing more rules, in the Action tab.

I used to have a rule for all incoming from a single email account, and then another rule by subject, and once I hit the "Stop processing more rules", and re ordered them in the priority, all was fine....

And yes, Safe Mode suggested by TWBit should bypass rules if I am not mistaken....

right, I don't see a switch to do that - you could try /Safe but it didn't explicitly mention that mode wouldn't fire rules.  I guess you could do it the hard way (manually turn them off)

Edit the rule and add it from the Select Action(s) step.

I opened up user's mailbox on machine, then, tried to set stop processing more rules,  it errored out telling me to select the description ..

I' m afraid to pick the wrong one to stop.

Does your Rules wizard Select Action step look like this?

Ok. Keep in mind that this has to be done for each rule.

Thx you both John and TWBit.  

Stopping the processing of more rules was a success when I performed it on client computer. Opening her mailbox on my computer and trying to stop them did not work.

Also, running Outlook from Safe mode bypasses the rules and add-ins as well.

*** The problem got resolved by turning off the ADD-in extension for ACT ( by sage ) in her Outlook on her machine. *******
