Entering a name for the new folder.
Enter the new folder name in the Name box.
Make sure that Mail and Post Items is selected in the Folder Contains list.
Now that you have created the folder you can proceed to defining the rule:
Select Tools, Rules and Alerts from the Outlook menu to display the Rules and Alerts
On the E-mail Rules tab, click the New Rule button. Outlook displays the Rules Wizard
In the Stay Organized section, click the “Move messages from someone to a folder”
In the Edit the Rule Description section, click the “people or distribution list” link.
Outlook displays the Rule Address dialog box (see Figure 9.10).
If you wanted to move messages from a single individual who is in your contacts list, you
could click that person’s entry in the list and then click the From button. Because you
want to move all messages from a domain, enter “acme.com” in the From box (without
the quotes, of course).
Outlook may display a dialog box claiming not to recognize “acme.com” because it is not
a complete email address. This is okay — just click Cancel to close this dialog box and
return to the Rules Wizard.
