I posted this elsewhere incorrectly, please delete if needed.

First time I've entertained using this. So I just "simulated" it by entering few numbers into a text file that matched the rule I had created. I then tried sending this to my other email address via Outlook. It appears sent but it is never received? There are no alerts at BD either to say the rule was applied.

To confirm nothing is wrong with Outlook etc, I created another file with different numbers and sent that. As expected this went through instantly.

Question then: Should I not be getting alerted on the first instance? Obviously BD is "stopping" it.
