I have a rule setup to move all messages containing a certain text string into a specific folder in Outlook 2010 x64. I want to make it such that it does not move messages with subjects that begin with "Re:"

Here's an example:

I have a rule that goes something like this:

IF the subject contains "This is a test" THEN
    Move it to the Test Folder
    Stop Processing Rules
ENDIF

I would like to change the logic to:

IF the subject contains "This is a test" THEN
    IF the subject Does Not Start With "RE:" or "Re:" THEN
        Move it to the Test Folder
        Stop Processing Rules
    ENDIF
ENDIF

IOW: I don't want to filter the reply messages.

Any suggestions on how I would go about doing this?

Thanks. The "Except If subject contains specific words" was what I was looking for.
