Cannot create a simple rule

I have rules for moving a message to a folder when received from someone but … now I can’t create a new rule. It says that: “A required value for the rule condition “from people” was not set.” … but it was. I even created a contact from the message and selected the “add from contacts” option. Still doesn’t work. I only have three rules. I even deleted one rule in case the free version had some limit. No joy. I am using version 8.2.1659 which is current.

I got it to work by choosing the wildcard “contains” in the e-mail address. Doesn’t make sense why entering a complete e-mail address … or selecting from contacts … doesn’t work.

Can you give us a screen shot of the rule you are having an issue with?
Go to MENU > RULES, select the rule and take a screenshot.
