[dba-Tech] Outlook Express

It's hard to say without seeing the wording of the rule, but I always add the action "And stop processing other rules" to all my rules, so there's no duplication, and no possibility of anything else going wrong.

Dear Lists:

I am having trouble creating a mail rule for my wife on her Outlook Express.
I recently registered with Cappex.com on advice of my older son who is graduating this year from college.  It's a site that sends you advice about scholarships targeted to your profile.  I entered my younger son's profile.
Of course I'm getting a lot of emails from them about various colleges that would like to get #2 son on their mailing list.  As well as a couple showing scholarship information.

I set up a rule in my Outlook to forward all the Cappex emails to my wife so she could keep an eye on them as well.  I created a Cappex folder on her Outlook Express named Cappex.  Then I tried to create a rule that would sort those forwarded emails into the Cappex folder on her box.

But none of the rules seems to work on the forwarded emails.  The Cappex rule is the first one on the list.  Further down is a rule that if the email comes from me it goes into the Rocky folder.  So far, all my attempts have failed - all of the forwarded mail ends up in her Rocky folder.

I tried where the body contains 'Cappex'  which they all do, but no luck.  I tried in the subject 'college', 'university', or 'scholarship' which they all have, but no cigar.

Any ideas on what's going wrong here or how to create a rule that will work?
