Something happened in outlook 2003 this morning that has me baffled? I created a new rule for an e-mail I got and when I went to edit it I couldn't. All the options including delete were grayed out. Can't remove the check mark to deactivate it either. There are no icons under the actions for that rule either but it works. Other rules are OK but any new ones I create end up not be able to edited or deleted. I tried starting outlook with the /cleanrules switch and importing a backup of my rules I had saved before this happened. Now all my rules are grayed out. I have a hunch this is a result of going to office 2007 and then going back to office 2003. I'm not sure but the rule I created this morning may be the first one I created since going back to office 2003. I did un-install office 2007 before installing office 2003 again. There were leftovers because I didn't have to setup outlook again all my settings were retained. I also tried doing a detect and repair in outlook which had no effect. I think I am going to try clearing my rules again and start from scratch with new ones. Wish me luck.
