Rule problem: Delete message(on other machine)

I have set a rule for a message. This rule is that when a specific message arrives it will be permanently deleted and i have set also that this message applies for "this message".

The problem is that despite that, this rule, in the list of rules displayed, has in brackets that it is "for other machine".

I suppose that this problem is caused because the other day i imported the pst file from another pc for which i had created exactly the same rule. So, in 2 PCs i have exactly the same rule and in one of them i imported the pst of the other and consequently the rule( i suppose) in the pc that "accepted" the pst file was altered to "ohter machine".

Ok, suppose things happened described as above-i have tried repeatedly to alter this to "this machine only", instead the rule is listed with the "for other machine" message in brackets beside it.

Any ideas why this happens?

When you migrate rules you must reset them to the new location before they will work. Just step through the rule so it will be connected to your current file's location.Russ Valentine
