A completed rule definition displays the details that you have specified.
Finishing the Rule
At this point the rule is ready to use. You can click Finish in the Rules Wizard dialog box to save
the rule. In some cases you may want to fine-tune the rule, in which case click the Next button.
Fine-tuning a rule is essentially the same as creating a rule from a blank template, covered in the
Creating a Rule from a Blank Template
If the rule templates that Outlook provides do not suit your needs, you can create a rule from a
blank template. In the first step of the Rules Wizard, shown earlier in Figure 9.1, you must select
one of the following from the Start from a Blank Rule section:
n Check Messages When They Arrive: To create a rule that works with messages you
n Check Messages After Sending: To create a rule that works with messages you send.
After making your selection, click the Next button. Outlook displays the next wizard step as shown
in Figure 9.4. You use this dialog box to specify the conditions for the rule. You can have more than
one condition for a rule. When you do, all conditions must be met for a message to be processed.
The steps to follow are described next.
