Prevent duplicate messages with Outlook rules

A quick post here for anyone that’s added a rule to Outlook and since had duplicate messages appearing. The problem is that Outlook doesn’t terminate when it processes the first rule it matches, so it’ll carry on until everything is satisified.

The solution? The ‘stop processing more rules’ rule! When you add your new rule and get to the ‘Select action(s)’ box, make sure you tick the aforementioned box too. Job done.
