An Exchange user id being copied on mails sent to himself.  When I click the dropdown in the rules tab I see that there are rules to send mails from him to his inbox.


However when I go to manage rules no rules appear in outlook at all.
Any ideas?

Hi,

I would clean all the rules out of his outlook and add any back in that are needed.

go to Start > Run > and type "outlook /cleanrules"

This will start outlook with no rules and hopefully get rid of the offending one!

If you mean at the organisation, hub transport, transport rules... then there are none there.

yes, thats what i meant.

If its not there, the last possible place for mailflow is on the user's mailbox account.
recipient configuration > mailbox, open the account and on one of the tabs there is an option to also deliver to X with or without delivery into the user's mailbox. (for forced forwarding, etc)
