    Rules Wizzard makes dups (2000 SP2)

    Have setup rules to move various msg's to related folders in an effort to better manage SPAM.
    I created rules in a certain order to filter the msg's. I figured as the msg was received in the inbox, the 1st rule would test it and move it to the correct folder. Then the next and the next etc. The last rule checks that my name is not in the TO or CC and that should make it SPAM. That msg is them moved to the Junk Mail folder.
    The problem is a msg is correctly moved to the right folder, but a copy ends up in the Junk Mail folder. I have verified the rule uses "move" and since it end up in the Junk Mail folder rather than the Inbox, I have to assume the Rules Wizzard is causing it. Help!

    after the last rule that should act on the message, add a stop processing action - this stops therest of the rules from acting on the message too.

    Could you explain what you mean by a stop? I can't find anything on that.

    Under the 'What do you want to do with this message?' window.

    (I'm on 2002 & I can't remember if it's the same in 2K - the rule is near the bottom of the list.)
