I set up a new folder for an email sender and now my emails are not able to use the rules that I set up.  What can I do to enable them again.

    Adding a mailbox should not change rule operation. Can you post an example of one of the rules?

    I don't seem to be able to copy a rule, but, this is how one rulel displays.

     

    Name of Rule is Richard Cryar.

     

    If any of the following conditions are met:

     

    From contains rcryar@auduboncapital

     

    Move message to Richard Cryar mailbox

     

    Not only does this rule not work, but all emails are going into the new box I created and not to the inbox.

    Rules are evaluated in the order in which they appear in Preferences/Rules, and evaluation will stop when a rule moves the message to a mailbox. So if an early rule is moving stuff to your new mailbox, later rules aren't going to have a chance to do anything.
