Rule to move a Message is Copying instead


B

Bob Sisson

I have built many rules before...

I have a rule that when a message comes in containing specific words in the
subject it is supposed to MOVE the message to a specific folder and play a
Sound.

Instead it COPIES the Message and plays a sound, so I end up with duplicates.

I checked and rechecked and I have selected MOVE and nothing else.

I am running Outlook 2007 Sp2 standalone (no server)

A move is actually copy + delete, perhaps the "play sound" is
interfering with the "delete", try removing the "play sound" portion.

Try adding the "stop processing more rules" action to the rule.
