    Rex,

    I stiil get all emails from the forum

    From: "JP Software Forums" <neil@jpsoft.com>"

    with a

    From: MLK <>
    Reply-To:

    Since my email reader (OE) is uncapable to create a rule for "reply to"
    or "From: MLK", all emails end in a folder for Neil (neil@jpsoft.com).
    This is _very_ frustrating. I feel there was no need to change a system
    into which many of us had invested a lot of time to create rules to sort
    JP's forum emails into the appropriate folders.

    Mails before the change had e.g.

    From: Charles Dye <>
    Reply-To:

    "From: MLK" was missing

    Something went clearly wrong IMHO. Could you _please_ revert _soon_ to
    the old system, where readers like OE could sort your forum emails? Or
    install newsgroup access?

    Mit freundlichem Gruß,

    Klaus Meinhard

    Klaus,

    I use Outlook Express as my mail client. The change in "sender" did not
    mislead the message delivery rules.

    Here is a typical message rule (displayed via Tools -> Message Rules):

    Apply this rule after the message arrives

    Where the From line contains ''

    Move it to the TC support folder

    and Stop processing more rules

    The message rule did not make it to the posting. Below is the corrected
    version:

    Apply this rule after the message arrives

    Where the From line contains ''

    Move it to the TC support folder

    and Stop processing more rules

    Seems like somewhere along the line the posting software deleted the actual
    email address from between the apostrophes. In my actual example it was:
    "tc_support at jpsoft dot com".

    Steve,


    If you take the trouble to _read_ my message you'll see that all my
    emails from the forums have a

    From: "JP Software Forums" <neil at jpsoft.com>"

    Now tell me again how to sort that into separate folders with OE. (Hint:
    I have the rules which worked nicely until a few days ago, when messages
    started arriving from Neil's adress. I even have a rule for Neil, and it
    is into this folder the messages get sorted).

    But perhaps my message has been mangled the same way yours have been.
    Prabably the same software that changes your name to FXbiXn :-(. As I
    wrote somewhere else, some software is too clever for its (!) own good.
    :-)

    I have resent the original message with emails obfuscated.

    Mit freundlichem Gruß,

    Klaus Meinhard

    Klaus,

    I don't know why my rule, as quoted, succeeded in putting your above message
    into the proper (i.e., the one I wanted) folder. I use WinXP SP3, OE
    6.00.2900.5512.

    I had created the rule using the Message -> Create Rule from Message
    pull-down.

    See above the quote for answering your post!

    I reveive my JP mails with

    From: "JP Software Forums" <neil at jpsoft.com>"

    now. Before it was e.g.

    From: Steve FXbiXn <tc_suggestions at jpsoft.com>

    which was of course easy to sort.




    Look at the properties of your messages: what's in the

    From:

    header? Here it is what's shown above, and with exactly the same OE
    6.00.2900.5512 and identical rules my mails get sorted into a folder for
    Neil's mails, as expected from the "From" header.

    Mit freundlichem Gruß,
