Turn on or off a rule

Rules in Microsoft Outlook can be used to help keep your Inbox organized. For example, you can have all messages from a specific sender moved to a specified folder.

To turn on or off a rule, do the following:

  1. Click the File tab.
  2. Click Manage Rules & Alerts.
  3. In the Rules and Alerts dialog box, on the E-mail rules tab, select or clear the check box next to the rule (rule: One or more automatic actions taken on e-mail messages and meeting requests that meet certain conditions, along with any exceptions to those conditions. Rules are also referred to as filters.).
