Outlook Forwarding Question

I have a client who is getting emails forwarded to his Outlook 2013 client from a recently retired employee.  He insists he wants these forwarded emails to appear in a folder named after the retired person, not to his own inbox.  I've created a rule to push the emails to such a folder, but they are still delivered to this folder AND his inbox AND he gets a message delivery notification on his own inbox, which he does not want either.  We're using Exchange 2013, again his client is Outlook 2013.  Any help appreciated!

Ah, this just got more complicated. Your rule is good. This means you've got some corruption somewhere, and that's a much bigger pain to diagnose.

Try recreating his mail profile and let it rebuild the inbox, then check the rules again. You may have to recreate them.

Double check the rule you created and make sure you have "Move it to the specified folder" checked and not just "move a copy to the specified folder". If you move a copy, it will leave the original in the main inbox folder.

Hi William!  The user ended up canceling his request so I didn't proceed any further.  I thank you for your help.
