How to Create Rules for Arriving Messages in Outlook 2013

Outlook 2013 lets you earmark messages and even move messages as they arrive automatically to folders apart from the Inbox folder. You create a rule to move e-mail from a particular person automatically to a folder or be alerted when e-mail arrives from a certain person or the Subject line of a message includes a certain word.


Select an e-mail message from a person whose messages require a rule.

You can skip this step if your goal is to create a rule for messages that contain a certain word in the Subject line.


On the Home tab, click the Rules button.

If you’ve selected a message, Outlook conveniently offers to create a rule for messages from the sender.


Choose an option on the drop-down list.

Automatically move messages from this person to a folder: Choose Always Move Messages From, and in the Rules and Alerts dialog box, select a folder.

Be alerted about messages: Choose Create Rule. You see the Create Rule dialog box. Fill in the dialog box and click OK.


To change or delete a rule, click the Rules button and choose Manage Rules & Alerts.

On the E-Mail Rules tab of the Rules and Alerts dialog box, select a rule and change, copy, or delete it.
