        Subject: [exchangelist] New "Rules" Error to me...
        Two Outlook 2000 users have been getting the error below when
they try setup new rules. The rules are simple, "Mail from specific
account gets moved to another folder".  I am using Exchange Server 2000
and Outlook 2000.  Each with the most current service packs and patches.
There is no shortage of disk space (52GB free on the Exchange Server)
and plenty on the 2 workstations in question.  No one else on the
network is getting the error.  In addition, they are unable to delete
the rule that has been deactivated.  Anyone have any thoughts?
        "One or more of your rules could not be uploaded to the Exchange
server and have been deactivated.  This could be because some of the
parameters are not supported or there is insufficient space to store
your rules"
