Transcript:How to Create Outlook RulesHi, I'm Shane Murphy, your technology guru for About.com. Today we'll review how to create and undo rules in Outlook.
How to Create Outlook RulesStart by opening Outlook and clicking on "Tools," then "rules and alerts." Now click "new rule."
A new menu will appear with a number of different starting points for you to create a rule from. Select one of the options, then click the blue links at the bottom to fill in the specifics for each of the different variables in the rule.
For instance, if we wanted to make a rule that moved every piece of mail with the word "schedule" in the subject, we would click the "move messages option." For the word, we would enter "schedule" and tell Outlook to move these to the "schedule" folder.
From here, click next to review all of the variables again, or just click "finish" if you're done.
How to Modify or Delete Outlook RulesOn your rules main page, you can now uncheck the box to disengage this rule, and perform other actions like copy or delete it.
