Outlook 2003 using Exchange Server
Mailbox 1 - default acct
Mailbox 2 - shared with multiple users

I set up a rule that when a message arrives from a specific person to move
it to a folder under mailbox 2. It runs correctly if the incoming message is
addressed to Mailbox 1 but I need it to run only on Mailbox 2. How do I
specific the rule should apply to Mailbox 2 and not the default Mailbox 1.
When I run the rule manually, there is an option to browse to the desired
mailbox and subfolders.
Thanks!
