    Rule does not work properly (2000 SR-1)

    The following rule works fine for incoming in-house mail:
    ---
    Apply this rule after the message arrives:
    where my name is in the Cc box
    move it to the ... folder
    ---
    but not for any mail coming from outside to our Exchange Server. The problem seems to be that 'my name' and 'hermann.peifer@eea.eu.int' are not understood as the same.

    I have not found any workaround :-(
    Could someone help?

    TIA. Hermann

    In the first step of the rule, when you say "where my name is in the Cc box"

    you can also say "with hermann.peifer@eea.eu.int in the recipient's address"

    Hope this helps!

    If you only want to catch CCs, you might also need to add an exception later in the wizard: "except if sent directly to me." Now, I don't know whether a CC is also considered "direct" (I'm sure To is), so you'll have to experiment a bit...

    Thanks for the inspiration so far. The following combination did look promising, but does not work as expected as Ccs are as well considered to be sent "directly" to me.

    "with hermann.peifer@eea.eu.int in the recipient's address" plus
    "except if sent directly to me."

    I'll continue to experiment ...

    You may need to add yourself to your own address book in the format it is arriving in, then use that entry as the 'recipient' to look for.

    I've done this already, however the rule wizard only let's me look for mails sent
    To: <people from my address book> but not explicitly for mails sent
    Cc: <people from my address book>
