Outlook 2007 Rules don't work properly. HELP.
Posted on 2008-11-14
On Outlook 2007, I'm having problems with mailings lists configurations. What I want is to have, for each mailinglist that I subscribe, a specific folder that contains all messages from that mailing list. Simple hm?
Not quite... :(
WHAT HAS BEEN DONE?
For doing this I have create a rule like:
1)Apply this rule after the message arrives
2)through the pop.gmail.com account
3)and with [css-d] in the subject
4)and on this machine only
5)move it to the Mailing-List CSS-Discuss folder (note: I have move and not copy, because the "move" actually, copies. If I chose copy Outlook does nothing :s)
6)and delete it (so he can delete the message on the inbox. Why do I need this delete here? Because, he does not properly move the messages, he copies, so, I have to delete the remaining on the inbox after the message has been copy to his specific folder (in this case: Mailing-List CSS-Discuss folder).
WHY THIS RULE SHOULD WORK:
However, despite the fact that this same rule works (I only change the destination folder of the messages) for another mailing list on my outlook 2007, this does NOT work properly for a couple of other mailing lists.
WHAT ARE THE SIMPTOMS?
The messages on the Inbox dont get deleted. So I have always a duplicate, one on the Inbox, another on the specific mailing list folder. Since the mailing list as, more or less, 50 to 100 e-mail per day basis... :s
How can I write a proper rule that actually works?
How can I delete automatically the messages that are received on my Inbox and that are copied to a specific folder?
Hope someone can help me with this :(((
