Forward Rule Doesn't Work for Replies


M

Matthias

Hi,

I have Office 2007 and I want to set up a rule that forwards all e-
mails sent to me (not CC:) to a different account on a different
domain. It's not an Exchange server so diverting doesn't work. The
issue I have is that this works fine for all e-mails that are the
first in a thread, but as soon as the e-mail that is sent to me is a
reply to a previous e-mail, Outlook doesn't forward the e-mail.

Any suggestions?

Matt

Outlook will autoreply only once per sender address per session.

Thanks Brian,

Actually that is not the case (unless I misunderstand what a session
means). I have Outlook running and I get all e-mails from the same
sender forwarded to the new e-mail address.

And even if it were the case - would there be a way around it, this
setup would defy the purpose of a forwarding option, wouldn't it?

A session is the period of time between when you start Outlook and when you
stop it.
I have Outlook running and I get all e-mails from the same
sender forwarded to the new e-mail address.

I may have misunderstood that you said. I thought you mentioned replies, but
upon reading again, I see you said that everything is a forward, but those
messages the sender sends that are replies to your messages aren't forwarded.
If I were you, I'd set the forwarding up on the server. It's more efficient
that way.

Thanks Brian,

The problem is that the server doesn't allow me to set up a forward
rule that sends the e-mails to another domain, so I would need to
resolve the issue within Outlook.
