Jim, that's a good point.  But, when my rules is supposed to "apply this
rule after the message arrives," and the message arrives at startup, I
would expect it to apply.

You should be aware that Outlook rules DO NOT run at startup. If you
look at all the rules that you can construct, nothing gives that option.
Everything is set to run "when" "after" etc. mail arrives.

Linda,
I talked to a ms product support rep who had me do a couple things -
delete the rules and recreate them.  didn't work.  export the rules,
delete them, and then import them.  didn't work.  apply all outlook 2002
patches.  didn't work.
 
i'm waiting to hear back from him again.....

Hi Steve....it appears to be a bug that Microsoft has not addressed yet.
Everyone I know who uses Outlook 2002 has this problem and NO, it's not
fixed with the SP1 patch.  Ive got the patch and it still happens.
 
Fortunately, I'm running Windows XP so I don't have to reboot much, so I
just leave Outlook running all the time.  As long as I leave it running,
the rules work fine.  But if I ever have to shut it down, the rules do
NOT work when I first turn it on.  The only other workaround anyone has
found is to turn off the automatic downloading of mail and do it
manually.  It's like if you turn Outlook on and let it sit there for a
minute or two, THEN download your mail, the rules work. It's like
Outlook starts downloading the mail before it recognizes the rules.
 
I agree it's a major pain in the neck.
 
But, the other pain in the neck of Outlook 2002 is that it doesn't
expand folders when they receive mail.  However, this one WAS fixed with
the SP1 patch.

Subject: [office2000] outlook 2002 rules not applying



Hey everyone, 
I have some rules to move messages to specified email addresses to
different folders.  When I open Outlook, most of the time the rules
don't apply.  It's very annoying to have to do the "run now" command to
make the rules apply every time I open Outlook.

I searched MSKB but found nothing.  Anybody know if this is documented
anywhere or if this is fixed by Office XP SP1? 

Thanks,
