Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a rule from scratch, part of Outlook 2010: Effective Email Management.
If you simply want to create a rule that moves a message, then the easiest way…to do it is to select a message and choose Rules and either choose to move a…message from a particular person or to a particular person.…However, if you want to do anything else automatically, then you need to…actually create a rule.…You can choose any message you wish or no message at all, and under Rules, choose…Create Rule or right-click and choose Rules > Create Rule.…I'd like to create two different kinds of rules that will run in the…background automatically in order to handle my incoming items for OilFest and OilFest Vendors.…
You may recall that we created a message earlier to send to vendors, and we asked…them to include the words "OilFest Vendor" in the subject line of any requests…that they sent us for information.…What we'd like to do now is rather than use a search folder to find those, we…want to automatically move all of the incoming e-mails with OilFest Vendor in…the subject line and move those to a folder called Vendor Info Requests.…
