Creating rules to process messages
You can have Outlook evaluate your incoming or outgoing email messages and take various
actions with them based on sets of instructions you set up, called rules . You can create rules
based on different message criteria, such as the message sender, message recipients,
message content, attachments, and importance. By using rules, you can have Outlook move,
copy, delete, forward, redirect, reply to, or otherwise process messages based on the criteria
you specify. You can choose from a collection of standard rules or create your own.
If you have a Microsoft Exchange Server account, you can set up rules that are applied to
messages as they are received or processed by your Exchange server, and rules that go into
effect only when you indicate that you are unavailable, by setting up an Automatic Reply.
Whether or not you have an Exchange account, you can set up rules that are applied to
messages stored on your computer.
