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!

You can only create rules on the mail Exchange mailbox. In order to create a
rule for another mailbox, you'll need to create an additional mail profile
with that mailbox set as the default account (ask your admin for setting the
correct permissions on the additional mailbox; you cannot do this via
Outlook permissions).
