Why Are Some Rules Not Executed When Mail Is Imported?

I have a number of rules that don't seem to get applied during mail import runs. However, they do get applied if I open the folder where the mail is (Input folder) and then: click on Rules/Manage Rules & Alerts.../Run Rules Now.../Select All/Run Now

This is the rule:

 

Experian

685

1

Enabled

Receive

     Condition: Sender is in the recipient list specified in ToOrFromRuleCondition.Recipients.

685

2

  

          Experian<email address removed for privacy reasons>

685

3

  

     Rule action is to move the message to the specified folder.

685

4

  

          Credit

685

5

  

     Rule action is to stop processing more rules.

685

6

  

 

So, the question is why isn't the rule applied on initial reading email but only when run later?
