Rules Issue - Need to Clear Message Flag

Skip to first unread message


Aug 2, 2003, 8:58:26 PM8/2/03
I have a rule setup to filter spam by content in the message headers and
move it to a specified folder and clear the message flag.

The "move" part of the rule works fine - the email messages end up in my
designated Spam folder) but the message flag in the toolbar remains even
though it's indicated in the rule to clear the message flag.

How do I fix this?

Thanks much.

the flag needs cleared before the move, once it's moved, the message no
longer exists afa Outlook is concerned - outlook should use the correct
order if the flag rule is part of the move rule - ie:

apply this rule
clear the flag
and move it to [folder]

if you're using two rules, the flag rule needs to be above the move rule.
