Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a rule from a message, part of Outlook 2013: Efficient Email Management.
Rules in Outlook are an awful lot like Quick Steps…with one major exception.…With Quick Steps, you're always taking…the initiative and saying, "Use this quick step now…"with this message or this group of messages."…Rules, on the other hand, once you create them,…you turn them on and turn them loose,…and they run in the background.…You won't need to say launch this rule…or move this message because the rules…are running automatically.…As a matter of fact, you can create rules…that run even when Outlook isn't even running,…so in this movie, we're going to take a look…at how we can create rules based on messages,…and then, in the next movie, we'll see how…we can create custom rules.…
Let's see, though, how we would create a real easy…rule based on who a message comes from.…I'd like to be able to take the summaries…that are coming from Yammer, and they say…they're from Connetico.info on Yammer,…and move them to my Yammer Notices.…So I'm going to right click, choose rules,…and say always move messages…from Connetico.info on Yammer.…
