Outlook 2007 Rule won't go away

    I'm using Outlook 2007 on Vista.

    I created a rule to forward messages to another email account. The thinking it that it would leave a copy of the email in the original mailbox. However, a copy was not left so I deleted the rule. Even though the rule no longer shows in the wizard, the emails are still forwarded. I used the outlook.exe/cleanrules command, but emails are still being fowarded.

    Any ideas?

    Not being an outlook user, no, but you could create a new rule for the other account to forward the forwarded email back to the original account. Since it wouldn't come from the same person as it originally had or because it had a different message, perhaps it would be missed by the rule that won't go away.

    Unfortunately that didn't work. It doesn't appear to do anything. The original rule fowarded all messages.
