Outlook supports a wide range of rules that you can create. To make the learning process easy, we'll show you how to create a rule bases on a name or subject. Once you see how to create a simple rule, you'll be able to apply your knowledge to creating other type of rules.
Create a rule based on a name or subject.
- Open Outlook Exchange
- Open the message you want to base a rule (rule: One or more automatic actions taken on e-mail messages and meeting requests that meet certain conditions, along with any exceptions to those conditions. Rules are also referred to as filters.) on.
- On the toolbar, click create 'Rule'.
- In the 'Create Rule' dialog box, select the conditions and actions you want to apply.
To add more conditions, actions, or exceptions to the rule, click 'Advanced Options', and then follow the rest of the instructions in the 'Rules Wizard'.
