When I add a new rule in Outlook 2003 mail, it asks if I want to run the rule in the present folder at that time. I say "Yes", I see it run the rule, but when it is finished, non of the emails have been moved to the new folder. How can I fix this?

That usually means that emails does not match to created rule.

Well, I select the message that represents the ones that I receive, for example, the "from" field and run that. So, I am expecting that that will match. ???? – Xavierjazz Oct 5 '12 at 21:27
