    I assume you mean MSOffice Outlook? As idgat mentioned above, we always have to be very careful when we use the word Outlook because MS have sprinkled it about all over the shop.

    = I never access my MSAccount using my browser.

    Checked it out just now and the rules that I created in Outlook for Windows are also in the online version, including the one I created just now (the above one).
    Oh, right. I hadn't thought of that.
    Because you are on Exchange, what you set up in MSOffice Outlook for an MSAccount is mirrored in the online MSAccount.
    I've never seen that stated before [I've never known anybody with an Exchange setup before] but it sounds logical.


    So what is that MailWasher actually achieving for you?

    This is a brief how I handle emails ... I just don't use MS Outlook. Between MS Outlook and OneDrive most consultants who provide services to users can retire comfortably with income derived from the problems these 2 MS atrocities cause the unsuspecting user(s) ... who still insist on using them, despite the more user-controllable alternatives.

    I don't either. I've always used Thunderbird. Outlook in my opinion is convoluted BS.

    Let's see/hope that it works out fine.
    This says it will -

    In many of my MSOffice Outlook Rules, I also set Stop processing more rules which is one of the entries in one of the Rule setting dialogs. I don't know if it helps in your case or not.

    Classic example of the confusion - they all access the internet so they're all "online", and they all need Windows

    And there is no such product as "Outlook for Windows".

    (EDIT : This latter comment can be explained however because of Microsoft's marketing tactics of including MS Office with Windows installation, and thus I've come across many users who think it's part of Windows .... terminology like Word for Windows or Excel for Windows is not unfamiliar to me)
