Outlook 2003 SP3 - Problem with rules & Junk E-Mail


B

Hi,
when Outlook 2003 (11.8169.8172) downloads mails from my IMAP account it
processes all rules first and then moves all junk mail to the junkmail folder.
Due to that behaviour a copy of Junk E-Mails are moved to my personel inbox.

What options do I have to configure Outlook so that rules will be processed after
the junkmail filter.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I have been able to tell, "rules" only apply to messages
that Outlook decides to send to your Inbox.

I've tried and tried and TRIED to get "rules" to apply to my Junk
Mail, to no avail... like, I would LOVE to have it automatically
marked "read" and then deleted.

I found the following on Outlook 2003 Help and How-to

"Rules and the Junk E-mail Filter
Rules are now designed so that they do not act on messages that are moved to the Junk E-mail folder.
This keeps e-mail you mark as junk in the correct place rather than moving it to another folder
according to a rule that would otherwise apply"

This feature is introduced with Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 1.

However it don't work with Outlook 2003 SP3

Any ideas who to troubleshoot?

Thanks in advance

Office 2003 SP3 introduces tons of bad behavior. Do yourself a favor
and uninstall and reinstall Office 2003, then install Service Pack 2
and wait until Microsoft fixes this train wreck. It's been 3 months
since it was released. A solution expected at any time...
