In outlook 2007 on Windows 7, I have a rule to move to move all my work

emails to a folder (called "Work"), but it does not work. This rule worked

prior to upgrading from Xp to Windows 7 and re-installing Outlook 2007. All

of my other rules still work but this one. It is a rule to move all emails

from my inbox with specific words in the Sender's address ("@mycompany.com")

to a different folder ("Work") . When I look at the rule in my list of

rules it is checked, and only says "(client only)" next to it, as do all my

other rules. I have tried to manually run it against emails in my inbox, but

it does not move the emails. Please help! I setup a test rule the same way

but instead specified a specific user instead, and that one moved the email

from that user. VERY FRUSTRATED WITH THIS UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 7!

What type of email account do you have configured in Outlook 2007? If you

use Exchange server, the sender's address is not in that format.
