Order of Importance in Rules

Hi Christian,

Which rules takes precedence or the order of importance when using RULES.TXT "Read, NotNew, MarkForDelete, Delete".

Does "Read, NotNew, MarkForDelete, Delete" negate one another when using one of "Read, NotNew, MarkForDelete, Delete"?

I ask this cause I might have some duplicate(s) in some of my rules that might nullify the rules I made specially the RULES.TXT "Delete". I know you caution users the "Delete" options carefully.

Think of "Read, NotNew, MarkForDelete, Delete" as labels that are assigned to a message. So, if there is at least one rule that adds the label "Delete" to a message, that message will be deleted (therefore possible other labels have no meaning).
