Create rules in Microsoft Outlook

Tech TricksNeed to create a rule in Microsoft Outlook? Rules are types of directions you can give to specific emails, such as directing certain emails to a person automatically, or having them deleted when they are received from one particular person.


Rules can help declutter your inbox without you doing all the work.


To create a new rule, look up to the top of the screen to the ribbon. “Rules” will be between the “Move” and “OneNote” icons in Outlook 2010.


Click on “Rules”, and then “Create Rule”.


There you can customise the conditions for moving and organising your emails.
