    Outlook 2002 - Rules/Filters (2002 (10.2627.2625))

    My rules to move incoming messages to various folders work intermittently. They all seem to work when I "run now", so I think the rules themselves are valid. Otherwise, most of the time the messages remain in my inbox instead of moving to other folders.

    Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting? Thanks.

    Don't bother, it's a bug. Rules don't run immediately when you first open outlook, if you are also using the option to check mail every xx minutes. They'll kick in at some point, either after a few mails or on the next autocheck.

    The best thing to do is not close outlook very much. Leave it open all day long.

    Thanks, I'll keep it open longer and observe. Kind of an annoying little bug, I'd say.

    It's more than just annoying for me --- it's proving to be a really big chore every morning. I hope MS creates a patch for this real soon!
