Rule Not Working (Move and Mark as Read)


M

Matt W.

Using Outlook 2002 and Exchange Server. I deleted all rules and I've created
a rule that moves messages with the word "Read" in the subject to a folder
called "Read Receipts", then mark it as read. Unfortunately, my rule moves
the messages to the "Read Receipts" folder however it never marks them as
read. Is this because it is a client only rule? Please help as this is very
annoying. Thanks!

Hi Diane,
Thank you for responding. I removed the action to move it to a specified
folder and to answer your question, yes, it now marks it as read. Moving it
to the specified folder seems to be the problem. Is there a resolution for
this? Thanks agian.

The rule only works in the inbox and as soon as its moved, the message can't
be acted on. Try 2 rules: one for mark read first, then the move rule.
