    Rule Order (MSO2K sr1-a)

    If I have email -- lounge@wopr.com -- that I trust and want to get through, but I want no other mail from wopr.com, how can I achieve this (via rules)?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Try:

    Rule 1:
    Apply this rule when the message arrives
    with lounge@wopr.com in the senders address
    enter any other action you want to take place here
    and stop processing more rules.

    Rule 2
    Apply this rule when the message arrives
    with @wopr.com in the senders address
    delete it
    and stop processing more rules.

    Leif:

    But in Rule 1, if I put the "stop processing...", Won't it do just that, including stopping the second rule?

    It will stop processing more rules <big>if</big> the requirements in rule 1 are met.

    If you want both specific (lounge@wopr.com) and general (*@wopr.com) rules to work, you have to apply the specific one first and then stop it from being affected by the general rule.

    Alternatively, create one rule the checks for *@wopr.com in the sender's addres, then delete it - but add an exception to cover lounge@wopr.com. However, you may need to add 'lounge@wopr.com' to your address book/contacts.

    If you have both types of mail in your inbox, it is quite simple to test rules by using the 'Run now' facility in the Rules Wizard.

    Leif:

    I must pay a price for being slow... but

    So the "Stop Processing" in the "support@wopr.com" is a "Stop any other rules from affecting this type of e-mail", but does not affect processing all other types(?)

    ?

    Hourly consulting rates are available. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Maybe you are a person who works well with flowcharts? Draw a diagram of what you want to happen. This usually involves diamonds that have Yes/No answers; Yes leads to one box, No leads to the other. From this you can figure out how to create the rule. You may even realize when creating the rule that you can collapse two rules into one because of Outlook's "exceptions" feature. See the attached example.

    Note: This was created in Outlook 2002. Outlook 2000 may not have all the criteria and actions available in Outlook 2002.

    Jefferson:

    MSO2K doesn't have the 'except'... But I did see one I hadn't seen before -- "stop processing more rules"... Which then would dictate that a "two rule plan" would work...

    Thanks guys...

    Except for the exceptions, I presume you mean?
