Outlook Rules

By BorgInva ·
I have a rule where anything with CNET or ZDNET in the sender's name goes to a certain folder. It works but all Techrepublic emails go into that same folder. I then create a rule where Techrepublic emails go to its own folder, but instead, they get duplicated. One of each goes into the two different folders. So I deelted both rules to start from scratch. I took an email from CNET Shopper Newsletter Alerts [] and made a rule that any email just form that address goes to a certain folder. Still, the Techrepublics go into that same folder.
Any dieas why?

What are the parsing rules for deciding which domain is which?

I do not know what you mean. I just set up the rules as I always do. My rules for "paintball", "Lockernome", and others work. This just conflcits. The addresses are completely different yet Techrepulic emails go where ever anyhting matching CNET or ZDNET goes.

Here is a fresh new example.
Any mail that comes to DEFAULT goes into its specified folder. This includeds emails from CONDUCTOR. Now I create another sub folder under DEFAULT called CONDUCTOR. I create a rule that all emails FROM CONDUCTOR be moved to the CONDUCTOR folder. Now with this, it just places a copy in CONDUCTOR and leaves the original in DEFAULT. So I get 2 copies of 1 email.
How do I make it that MOVE means MOVE!!!!!?

If you use outlook 2003, try to create a distribution list then put the member (ZNET or DNET) by putting unique name / ID in message header (in simple.. try to use word excluding techrepublic).
Then use the rule by using a distribution list..

Good luck
