    Hi, have got a problem with Outlook 2011.I had 3 rules set up, simply so that emails for memebrs of my family went into their own folders.

    Now the rule names still appear in the list, but when I click on apply nothing happens and when I go to the rules dialogue box no rules are visible and I cant add any new ones.

    Any help appreciated - only had an iMAc 2 months, so very new to Macs
    thanks

    Select each family member's contact in the Address Book. Assign it a category "family".

    Create one rule under the account type (POP,IMAP, Exchange)

    From is in category Family
    Move to folder "Family"

    For help with rules see http://www.office.mvps.org/rules/index.html

    Much was written for Entourage but the same concepts apply to Outlook.
