I want to test the running order of Rules. I set two rules.

1. Apply this rule after the message arrives, with "week" in the subject, move it to "A" folder.

2. Apply this rule after the message arrives, with "week" in the subject, move it to "B" folder.

When I received a email with subject "week", it is moved to both A and B folder.

I confused. As my thinking,

when rule#1 is run, there is no email in inbox, rule#2 won't be run. so B folder will be empty.

Is it my wrong?

The rules are doing exactly what you told them to do. If you want no more rules to run after rule #1 is applied to a message, then add to rule #1 the "Stop processing" rule action.
