Outlook 2003 Forwarding Rule forwarding only one message of batch


D

David

Apply this rule after the message arrives
from [email protected]
and with Drop Ship Order in the subject
and on this machine only
forward it to [email protected]
and move it to the X folder
and mark it as read

Unfortunately, if I open outlook and receive 10 messages from the
sender that matches this rule, only 1 out of those 10 e-mails is
forwarded on! All 10 messages move to the X folder.

I found this KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q258787/

But the subject lines are unique, they are in the form:

Fwd: FW: PO# 12345 - Drop Ship Order
Fwd: FW: PO# 54321 - Drop Ship Order

They are definately very similiar, but each and every one of them has
a unique PO# in the subject line.

Why is this rule not firing as expected? I need all e-mails
downloaded in the batch to process this rule and forward them on
individually. Is there a way to get the expected behavior?

Could I execute a vbs script to do the forwarding instead of using the
"forward" rule itself? Would that work or have the same problems? If
that would work, can anyone point me to the vbs script?

Thanks,

Have you tried adding the "stop p[rocessing more rules" action to see if that
affects the outcome?

The reply to address is always the same, but the subject varies as
shown above. The subject lines are similar, but are not the same, so
I don't know why they are detected as dupes and discarded. It is
important that all of the messages are forwarded -- is there any way
to disable this "dupe" check, even if it is a registry hack?
