Creating a Rule In Outlook

Do you save your emails to individual sub-folders in Microsoft Outlook?

How much more productive would you be if these emails went directly into your subfolders?

You can set up a “rule” in Outlook to enable your emails to go directly to a specified folder.

By setting up a “rule”, you can create your own specific rules to apply to a certain individual’s or group’s emails. You also have the option of moving messages, deleting and flagging specific emails.

By selecting a ‘condition’ for that sender’s emails, you can specify to whom this rule applies.To determine what you want done with this email, select your desired action. There are even exceptions that can be in place if you want.

Steps to Setting a “Rule

1. > When it Outlook,, Select ‘Tools’
2. > ‘Rules and Alerts’
3. > ‘New Rule’
4. > Select ‘Rule from Template’ or make your own using ‘Blank Rule’ option
5. > Select ‘Condition’
6. > Select ‘Exception’ if desired
