System is running OS X 10.5.5

Mail App version 5.3


I had made a rule to auto-reply to email while I was out. Went to Mail Preferences/Rules. selected the rule and hit Remove. It disappeared from my Rule window. However, when anyone sends me an email, they still get the auto-reply message. I've looked at the Rule box and the old rule does not appear. Any thoughts? I can't find where the "rules" are kept in the system or libraries.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
