I'm using Outlook 2003, I can't seem to create a rule which moves/sends
e-mails created 'on behalf of' to a specified folder. Anyone?

I too would like to move e-mails I receive to a separate folder by applying a
rule if they have "on behalf of" or with other text in the preview gray bar.
I assist two VPs and several directors (who have teams) who have given me
delegate rights but I am bombarded by their "received on behlaf of" meeting
invites. To avoid appointment conflicts I do not respond to their meeting
invites, but I don't want to delete them in case they need me to accept on
their behalf.

A Rule will clear my e-mail account from these e-mails and help me get to
more important task related e-mails. On the other hand, applying a rule to
'received from' or 'sent from' could move task-related e-mails to another
folder without my review.

If I could use some other text in a Rule to separate these e-mails it would
be most helpful. For instance, in my preview pane there is a gray bar in
these e-mails which read, "This meeting is not in Last name, First name's
Calendar." or "Please respond on behalf of...". Any ideas?
