    Rule with two conditions (Outlook 2003 (?))

    I access Outlook at a remote site via Webmail. I need a rule that does this:
    1) For new incoming emails to me at this remote site email, check for OUO in subject, if found, move to local folder.
    2) After 1) completes, forward a copy of all remaining messages to my office email address.
    (Reason: I should not receive OUO emails at my office.)
    The two emails are different.

    I have tried putting two rules in to see if they would be run consecutively; no joy.

    I don't see an obvious way to combine statements 1) and 2) into one rule.

    Any ideas?

    I'm confused. Are you using Outlook or Outlook Web Access? If you are using Outlook then you should be able to have multiple rules run successfully. If you turn all the rules off then manually move the OUO e-mails and then run the second rule does it work? Does your OUO rule have a stop processing more rules entry (it should). Rules work on a per message basis. So, if a message fails rule 1 then rule 2 should be checked. Then the next message wil be evaluated starting with rule 1. If a message does not fail rule 1 and you have a stop processing entry only the first rule will be evaluated for that message. Then same as before the next message will be evaluated starting with rule 1.

    Joe, I am using Microsoft Outlook Web Access. What you describe is what I want to have happen.

    If I log on to view my remote email using Firefox, the navigation pane does not contain "Rules." That term is there when I log on using IE v.6 SP2. However, when I create a rule in IE, and place it first in the list, no joy. A test message gets forwarded according to the second rule.

    Also, I don't see a "stop processing more rules" option.

    What version of Exchange server? I'm running 2007 and I can't find any rules in OWA.

    In OWA 2003, Rules is available in the navigation pane. See screenshot below.

    Hans, I wonder if the OWA version may also be related to the user version of IE - which are you using?

    I'm using IE7. According to an article I found (clicky), the Rules button is available in IE 5.5 and later, but not in other browsers. And you must be using the Premium client, not the Basic client.

    Hans and Joe, thanks for the feedback. And Hans, thanks for the clicky link, which says:

    "Access to the premium version depends upon your Internet browser and operating system.
    Firefox and all Apple Macintosh browsers access the basic version."

    That explains why my two browsers gave different results.

    I have no idea of what version of OWA is in use at the remote server I am accessing. When I access OWA via IE > Premium, I am seeing a Rules pane. But my situation remains the same when I create two rules. An OUO test does move the message to my OUO folder (1st rule), BUT, it also forwards me a copy to my office email address (2nd rule).

    Picture edited by HansV to reduce size and to mask mail address data

    According to this microsoft.public.exchange.admin | Google Groups post rules are not available in OWA 2007. that sucks.
