Email rule doesn't work with XMAPI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using Outlook 2003 with an IMAP account.

    To see all sent mails in my IMAP "Sent"-folder, I set up an email rule which copies every sent email after sending into the IMAP "Sent"-Folder.
    This works pretty fine until I write and send emails with Outlook. But it doesn't work when I send emails with another application using extended MAPI (XMAPI). The email is sent in Outlook, but there is no copy in the IMAP "Sent"-Folder.

    Has anybody any hints how to get email rules work in combination with extended MAPI?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

  • There is nothing you can do: only Exchange rules that process incomng messages are implemented on the store (MAPI) level. All other rules are purely client side rules explicitly invoked by Outlook.
