    I'm running Outlook 97 and when I attempt to Compact Files, the system stops and returns a 'Not Responding' error. I've tried making a new .pst file and have no information in the new .pst file and the Not Responding error does not show up. When I use the .pst file with mail, contacts, etc., the error shows up. Any ideas? -- the crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe

I need to create a rule that after I have closed (read) the email from my 
Inbox, the rule moves the email to a specify folder. Thanks for any help.

The Rules Wizard can't automatically move items after reading (only on 
sending & receiving).

Thanks for your prompt reply and clarification on the rules wizard. Is it 
possible to move a mail from the Inbox to a folder via a macro?

Quite possibly but I'm not conversant in Outlook coding (yet... I'm knee 
deep in other coding stuff). Check out Sue Mosher's site for oodles of 
Outlook coding 'stuff':

2.False new mail indicator when using rules flagging mail read

Using Microsoft Office 2003 -- Outlook

Anyone ever notice how the new mail systray indicator will stay active for 
email received that has a rule to automatically mark it read and delete it?  
While I suppose I could understand someone reasoning that they actually like 
this feature, I do not.  Too bad there's not an implemantation to allow user 
control over this or in the very least a way to communicate this design [bug] 
feature back to the kool-aid stand. >:-(

3.Mail rules setting "mark as read" and new mail icon

In OE6 I've got a mail rule for spam (marked by K9) that 
just moves the mail to a folder and marks it as read.  
Whenever I receive spam I still get the new mail icon 
popping up in the system tray, even though the mail rule 
has marked it as read.  To get rid of the icon I have to 
actually read an old mail.  This is making the new mail 
icon completely useless as I receive about three times as 
much spam as real mail.

Similarly, if I receive a mail on one account and read it 
before OE has finished downloading from the other 
accounts, then I still get the new mail icon despite the 
fact I've already read the new mail.

4.Can the E-mail Rules recgonize read receipt messages

My employeer requires I have "Request a Read Receipt" on 
for every e-mail message thet we send. I'm in support and 
I currently send a couple of hundred messages a day. 
(There are 34 of us in this gruop and 6 groups in the 
department.) I would like a way to simply have every one 
of those returned read receipts go to a read receipt 
folder so I wouldn't have to look at all of them and I 
could mark them all as read once a day. 

I could not see haw to set up a rull that would do this 
with the rules wizard. Does anybody have a clue how to do 
this? Can it be done?
