Rule subject line criteria

I want to create a rule that moves emails with "ORD#####" in the subject (the
number signs represent a five digit number that will change) I don't want to
move emails that contain the word order. I am using Outlook 2003. Is this
possible? If not, is there a way to move emails from a specific person and
then any emails that are part of the "conversation"?

Microsoft has yet to provide support for regular expressions which,
for example, would let you check for a 5-character string that was
numeric. The best you can probably do is to test for the 10 strings
of "ORDn" in the Subject header where n is 0 to 9; i.e., "ord0" or
"ord1" or ... or "ord8" or "ord9". Presumably such e-mails are coming
from the same sender (or process) so why not test on their e-mail
address or other string in the From header?

Thank you that is perfect.

The reason I don't use the from header is becuase I want the whole
conversation to move as well but I don't want other emails from the
respondants to move.

So again thank you that is a great solution.
