Outlook 2000 Rules Wizard

By agnj422 ·
When setting up a rule to look for specific words in the subject or body and you add more than one, it states for example, "black" or "white". Is there a way to have it "black" and "white"? I tried semicolons, commas, but it double quotes it as ""black";"white"" or "black,white".

Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

I think this will do it! The step by step needs a little tweaking, but otherwise works! Thanks for your help!
