I think this bug was introduced with Outlook 2002. The rules work after
Outlook "warms up", and if I go to the rules wizard, and run the rules
on the unread messages in my inbox, they get sorted properly.

I do this already. I've put up with it for a few months, but it started
to get frustrating the other day.

I am more interested in getting Microsoft's attention than anything
