I'm trying to create a rule with 'and' operator condition in Office outlook 2003. Is it possible? when I type two words, it automatically adds it as 'or' operator. Let's say, I want to create a rule to forward the email if it contains two words 'aaa' and 'bbb'. How can I create this rule?

If the rule area is the same, the rule will specify an OR.  If it is different, an AND will be used.  For example:

Two words in the subject would be separated by an or, subject contains "Foo" or "Bar" and the rule would be applied if foo or bar were found in the subject

A sender's email address "bob@foo.com" AND Subject contains "foo" would look for both conditions to be true for the rule to work.

I do not think the rules in Outlook 2003 will support changing the operator within the same field.

You can however key in a phrase in the subject contains portion of the rule to say something like: subject contains "aaa bbb" which would return true if both were present.
