I have been asked what happens if 2 rules that move a message to 2 different
folders are valid for more than 1 email.

e.g.
rule 1: move an email with manchester in subject to manchester folder
rule 2: move an email with liverpool in subject to liverpool folder

what will happen if my email contanis both manchester and liverpool in the
subject folder.

You'll end up with one copy in the Manchester folder and one copy in the
Liverpool folder.

This is why sorting your rules, settings exceptions and setting the "stop
processing rules" action is so important.
