Pissing in the wind

I’m halfway through an Outlook training day for which I signed up after Outlook 2010 was introduced at our university over the summer, replacing the previous Groupwise system. I had hoped for a sleek overview of an ultra-efficient workflow, but instead we’re working our way along the toolbar, stopping every now and then to send each other emails trying out the new tricks: customized voting (No; No; No) and Directing all replies to the least IT competent colleague.

Time’s dragging, though, so I started fiddling around and tried to set up an auto mail storm. In rules, I set every mail from myself to be forwarded to myself. I had hoped that it would create a perpetual cycle of self-mailing, but sadly it stops after one cycle. Too bad.

Anyone got some other impossible rules?
