Outlook XP Rules

Ever noticed that sometimes Outlook XP completely ignores any rules you have set up. For example just delivers everything to your inbox regardless of the rule you have inplace to send the message to a different folder.

Does anyone know of a fix for this? Is this something that was sorted in the Service Packs. I don't really want to install a service pack unless I know it's going to fix my problem.

Cheers

Nope

It is annoying, isn't it?

It is usually related to how the rule was created... ie If you manually created the rules it can be buggy or if it is too complicated it can cause problems also.

If you created the rule via the organize button I dont have any problems at all with it.

For incoming email going to a folder I find that works ok as for rules to block something with the word Nortons in the subjet line I find it dont work so I now use mailwasher and I love it after all the spam and junk is washed/bounced/deleted I open my OE and only get what I want and seeing as the rules for folders work I am happy lol

I have got SP2 installed and it sill does it occasionally.

Also for some reason, messages from Microsoft sometimes get flagged as containing adult content. Yet my adult content sender list is empty.

Perhaps Outlook knows something we don't!?!
