Rules and Alerts Issue



  • 1. Incoming mail disappears OL 07
    Hi, I have Office Pro 07 installed on XP SP2 laptop. I have my accounts set up and the connections tested. When I do a Send/Receive everything appears normal and I see email coming in on the status bar. Once the transfer is complete the email is nowhere to be found. The last download included 30 emails. I have sent myself test emails from a separate webmail account I have, indicating a specific subject line so I can search for it in Outlook once received. I try the Send/Rec again, the email is received, I search for it and it cannot be found. I have looked in each folder for the distinctive subhect line and it's not there. I checked the specs for my acct and everything is set correctly with new email going to the default inbox. I have also reinstalled Office and run scanpst.exe on my pst file. The file is error free. Has anyone encountered this or have any idea? Thanks!

Rules and Alerts Issue

I've created a rule under Rules and Alerts to peramanently delete email if 
it contains "**SPAM** *****SPAM*****". When an email satisfies the criteria 
stated above I receive an error message telling me "You don't have 
appropriate permission to perform this operation".

I'm logged on as Administrator on a Windows 2000 Server using Outlook 2003 

Why will it not execute this particular rule and how do I get it to execute 
this particular rule?

Do other rules work ok? Will a move rule work on that criteria?

Yes, I have a few other rules that move email into other folders and they 
work just fine.

Yes, that is correct. It only occurs when I ask it to delete emails

I'd say it's a problem at the Operating System level with your permissions 
to permanently delete items.
If you have an administrator check with them as to what restrictions are in 
To be honest, you are probably better off moving instead of permanently

window pops for for a fraction of a second then disappears.  

Any ideas on how to remedy?

1.Tools -> Rules and Alert issue

I'm Using MS Outlook 2007. 
I setup different 'Rules' from Tools -> Rules and Alert -> 'New Rule' to 
transfer different types of message to different folders (based on either 
specific person domain name or specific word in the subject etc.). 

But the 'Rule' does not automatically work unless I  click 'Run Rules Now' 
or check the box in 'Run this Rule.. <Rule name>' to run in manually.

How do I make this Rules effective 'Automatically' (without my manual 
interaction) to Run the Rule ...?
