  • Rules for moving outside mails to specific folder

    Hi,
    I need a rule that move mails from extrnal domain to some folder.

    for example:

    My domain name is IBM and i got a message from someone in IBM, so the mail will come to inbox folder.
    But, if some mail came from google,microsoft or whatever, the mail will transfer to inbox->outside folder.

    I don't think you can.

    Why not set it up so that internal mail is routed to new folders that are named after the person???

    In the mean time have a look through the Rules and Alerts in Outlook.

      Well I think there is a work around it.
      • Place a Rule which moves messages from the domain: IBM to the folder named Inbox, internal. And under it
      • Place a rule that moves all messages to Inbox, external.


      That way when you pop up a message, first it is checked if from IBM will be moved to Internal if not it will be moved to External (since the second rule will apply on it).

      Test it and update me.

        But why would you want to move mail to another folder then have it moved back???

        I'm sure this is what i mentioned in my post.

          Dear wullieb1,

          The message will arrive to the inbox, and will be tested if from IBM will be moved to Inbox>Internal, if not from IBM it will be moved to Inbox>External.

          Sorry if I gave the impression that I am moving mesages backward and forward.
          Best regards,

            Surely this is a simple process... am I missing something?

            Create a rule that moves all incoming mail to the "Inbox -> outside" folder and have an exception for the internal domain.

            Though as I'm thinking about it, when you use Exchange (not stated by OP) it shows as their display name and not as [email protected] I'll have to check tomorrow.

              I actually went back to this today and came up with the following rule.

              Apply this rule after the message arrives through the Microsoft Exchage Server account and on this machine only.

              Move it to the Specified folder.

              Except if sender is in Global Address List address book.
              This should do what you want it to.
