ok first one

i have created various RULES in Outlook (not express) to send email to various folders and filter spam. All well and good BUT its making duplicates of pretty much everything and all i told it to do was MOVE files to folders

Second prob.

on another PC when you tell it to shut down it just hangs for ages (5mins ish) then will eventually start closing down. Its a game rig pretty beefy XP service pack2, virus checked, firewalled, bot check, Ad checked.............. any ideas? :(

Cheers

The second one sounds like one of the services is either being kept busy or is failing to stop. I'd look at a mass driver update, especially networking and chipset (motherboard) related. There may not be newer drivers available but sometimes even a reinstall of the same drivers can clear that kind of issue up, if one of the driver files has become slightly corrupt.

The first issue I haven't come across before, which rule type are you using (sender based or content based?).

I have 3 different e-mail addresses I manage with Outlook.

I set them up via Control Panel, Mail, then set each one up individually from there.

I also checked the prompt radio button to manage each one as required.

I found if you get Outlook to manage a number of addresses you get the duplication.

Hi

I manage four account with Outlook no probs. There is an option in outlook when running rules that says "move copy to specified folder" or similar. I get all mine filtered and no copies.

Cheers

On the second problem, i found a machine doing this recently out of the blue. If its not automatic updates then try shutting down indexing services. I have a machine that started this recently and this helped this and another problem of the drive being busy all the time.

Cheers

Edit: There are lots of reasons for the shutdown to be slow, i mention this one as its the latest for me!
