Just to let you all know I'm still having the same problems have tried everything now  :icon_chuckpc:

When you stop having dreams and ideals -- well, you might as well stop altogether.

I find Outlook rules to be very hit and miss. They work on creation, but never again for some of them...

It was trial and error I just wasn't going to be beaten.
First I wiped all the rules that had been previously set then I added all my email address into my contacts and then set a rule, by the way this didn't work before it seems that you have to add to address book first, anyway I add email addy set new rule from people or distribution list then set where you want it to go run this rule now in Inbox and it's been working great when I use to set a rule it set it for the first email and then when others arrived it just sat in the Inbox again and didn't move to the correct folder I think that downloads from microsoft have made this change the way you set rules because I have been using MSO for years now and never had any problems like this before that's why I like it so much even the microsoft forum couldn't give me an answer I hope this will be permanent now and not just luck will keep you informed

I'll keep everything crossed. I've had the same experience as you - I'll create a rule, it will run correctly the first time and then it does nothing after that. Strange beast is Outlook. :)
