If you create a rule that includes the action to Mark the message as watched or ignored in Outlook Express 5, this rule is not imported into the Rules Wizard when you upgrade to Outlook 2000.


The Outlook Rules Wizard does not have a comparable rule action, so the rule is ignored when you upgrade from Outlook Express 5 to Outlook 2000.
