Outlook rule runs OK with "Run Rules Now" but doesn't run automatically
Posted on 2011-05-12
I am using Outlook 2007 on a Windows 7 32 bit machine. I have a rule set up in Outlook that says:
Apply this rule after the message arrives with Remote Backup SUCCESSFUL in the subject
and on this machine only move it to the QCC Backup Success folder.
Emails coming in to this machine's Outlook are NEVER moved into the "QCC Backkup Success" folder. BUT, if I run this rule manually against the email in a sub-inbox folder that contains some emails that have this character string in the Subject line, they are immediately moved to the "QCC Backup Success" folder.
I have tried re-creating this rule, verifying the spelling multiple times and moving this rule to be at the top of the list of rules but it still won't move the appropriate emails to the requested folder. The emails ARE moved to another folder via the following rule:
Apply this rule after the message arrives sent to MGxxxxxxC@Verizon.net
and on this machine only move it to the Mark-Verizon folder
First, I don't understand why the first rule is not applied and the second rule is applied.
Second, I don't understand why the first rule doesn't automatically move the appropriate emails when they come in but does move them when the rule is run manually.
Any help would be appreciated.
