Sweep in Outlook dot com

I regularly set up sweep actions in Outlook dot com for the various daily/weekly/amazon emails I receive. Outlook dot com is regularly ignoring them. Does this feature work for anyone else or is this just another failed feature?

    <p>Checked my deleted items, it’s working correctly. It could be the sender is using a different email address, so perhaps might need to create a rule (which is more flexible and customisable) or create multiple sweeps for the numerous sent from addresses</p>

      <p>Mine are not working. I am going to just delete them and recreate.</p>

    <p>I have found that the advanced mail handling features in outlook dot com are a mixed bag. They are very good when they are working, but sometimes they just don’t work. The last six months or so have been the most stable since I began using it.</p>
