    Rules with wildcards in Outlook 2000

    I'm trying to create a rule in Outlook 2000 that will automatically send a copy of every outgoing email to a particular email address. What I keep coming up against is that I don't seem to be able to select "all." I keep having to specify which "people or distribution list" I want to send. Is there some sort of "wildcard" that I can use?

    Thank you!

    no wild cards, but for that rule it should work in ol2000. hit next when on the screen for selecting the first condition. a warning will pop up that it'll apply to all messages.

    It won't let me do that. Under "which condition(s) do you want to check" I have selected "sent to people or distribution list." When I click next it says "A value in the 'Rule description' box has not been set. To set a value, click the underlined words at the bottom of the Rules Wizard." Am I missing something?
    Thanks for your quick reply!

    uncheck that and hit next. leave that part of the rule blank and it will apply to every message.
