Outlook 2007 rule not running automatically 1 runs 1 does not?

Outlook 2007 rule not running automatically 1 runs 1 does not? 
I am very frustrated, I have a new setup of Outlook 2007 and cannot get 
rules to function correctly... here goes... 

I use IMAP email form my web host as I want messages coordinated with the 
server and addl computer at home. 

I have created a rule to copy all mail from account ??????@?????? to the 
main inbox (this works fine) 
then the 2nd rule does not run which is delete any message with the word 
[SPAM] caps and in those brackets as the email server marks suspected 
incoming SPAM with [SPAM] in the subject. 
Our email server uses SPAM ASSASSIN in cpanel. 

I have tried changing the order which the rules are processed and it does 
not seem to matter. 

anyhow the SPAM messages are supposed (by rule) to be MOVED to the junk mail 
folder, this does not happen 

Now I can click on rules manually and run rules NOW and it will move the 
messages ok. 

What is up how can this be automatic? 

I have the same problem on 3 office computers 1 with vista home 32 and 
others with xp pro all updated of course

I just did all of that and it did not help...

Update of issue

vista (fully updated)

Outlook 2007 (fully updated)

using IMAP mail only IMAP mail account

messages come into IMAP mail inbox

messages marked as [SPAM] are copied not moved into the main junk email folder in the personal folders

spam message remains in the inbox of the IMAP inbox with a line through it awaiting a purge command

then all messages are moved form the IMAP inbox to the main personal folders inbox including the SPAM messages and the SPAM messages are not marked for deletion anymore

 

If I manually run all rules the SPAM messages in the personal folders inbox are removed and moved to the correct junk email box in personal folders but it sits in there multiple times. multiple copies of the same spam message in the junk email box.

An did you add 'stop processing more rules' after each rule? Maybe you can ask your question in a more specific Outlook forum:
