    Hi Group:

    In order to keep my inbox mostly clean and showing only current messages, I've created another mailbox called "inbox-saved". I've also created a rule to copy all inbox message to "inbox-saved" upon receipt. Lately, the rule hasn't been working, meaning incoming messages aren't being copied. If I open up the rules pane I see that the rule has changed by itself, to copy message to inbox, rather than inbox-saved. If I change the rule back, it works fine, but if I close and re-open mail, the rule has once again reverted to copy to inbox, and not inbox-saved. I'm not exactly sure when this problem started, but for a number of years (since 2007) it was working without issues. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,


    EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.7
