Outlook Web Access Rule/Filter Creation [LNL]

For those of you who joined us for EHOVE's Lunch 'N Learn on Friday, October 29, you'll remember that Dave and I discussed using Rules and Filters to help you better manage the email you receive.  Rules/Filters are set up to transfer email that is sent to your account immediately into a folder or other location that you specify.  

For example, perhaps you are a frequent shopper on  Amazon will send you email receipts of the purchases you have made.  These emails are sent to your Inbox along with any other email you receive.  You may not always have the time necessary to filter out those emails.  The solution is simple: use a rule or filter.  

Take a look at the following link for a step-by-step instruction guide on how to do this: 

(The link mentioned shows actual instructions written by the MIT helpdesk, but they are applicable to all who use Outlook Web Access.)

This is just another step in helping you manage your Information Overload!  Enjoy!

  1. Using the rule or filter easily organizes your inbox according to what data you choose to sort.
