In Outlook, and other email programs as well, it is often very  
important to have the filters in the correct order.  Most email  
programs go through the list sequentially, so if the first rule  
filters a message, a later rule can't.  It's sometimes difficult to  
determine the right order to get them all sorted correctly.  You'll  
have to look at the ones that are being missed and see if they have  
anything in a prior rule that made them go to the wrong place.
