OL2003 SP2 IMAP: Problem with rules wizard and Junkmail


B

Bodo

Hi,
I've build a rule with the rules wizard to copy messages from IMAP-Inbox
folder to my personal folder.
When Outlook detects a mail that should go to the Junk-E-Mail folder on the
IMAP Server it copys the message to the Junk E-Mail folder but I also get a
copy of that message in my personal inbox folder.

How can I modify the rule to avoid these symptoms?

Thanks in advance.

Does the messages in the IMAP Inbox that get marked as spam and copied to
the Junk E-mail folder still show in the IMAP Inbox with the "marked for
deletion" strike-through? I would not expect the behavior you see, but if
the rule still processes the message because it's technically still in the
Inbox, I can understand it. The problem with that, though, is there is no
"except if the item is marked as deleted" exception so you can't move
message except when they're marked as deleted.

Thanks Brian,

Yes that's true it seems that the Outlook rules are processed prior to the
junk-mail
process.

Are there any other options?

Thanks

The Junk E-mail filter runs before rules, since SP1.
