Trouble adding Message rule

Hello,
I use WLM Version 2012 (Build 16.4.3505.0912).

I had a strange problem, I wanted to set a message rule for an alias on my
email address with my domain name, but every time I moved the cursor on the
name of the folder, or on Inbox, the "OK" button got greyed out, and only
worked from the "Drafts" folder.

The main name for my domain is
co-, and I want mail for
to come into its own folder, so I
set the rule "If To or Cc contains people" to
and then I tried "Move it to the
specified folder", but got the error I described earlier.

Also, the does not need to receive
(or rather, "should not", as the main address does that), but it should be
able to send under its own name, which is why I set it up as a proper
account, but unticked "Include this account when receiving or
synchronising", some accounts (when I manage to add all the relevant
folders) should be able to send, while others just need to receive mail.

But, my main concern is, where does that problem with the "OK" button come
from.

Thank you,
Klauwaart.

An update: I have now also seen that, when I want to address a folder in
setting a rule, not all folders I have in WLM appear in the message rule
list.
Very odd, don't you think?

Not enough info.

What type of email account (POP3, IMAP) ?
Where is the folder located ? (Email account, Storage Folders)
Alias address in your Contacts ?
Does the rule work if you create a folder in Storage folders and instruct the rule to move it to that folder ?

Fyi...WLM does not provide the option to 'only send'....i.e. it performs a send and receive - you can't send without a receive
