Tuesday Tip: Manage Email Using Rules

by Tony Rushin

Last week David gave some tips for combating Spam.  But how about managing email that isn’t Spam, but you also know it’s not urgent?  One way to manage emails of this nature is to use “Rules” to divert the email to where you want it even before it hits your inbox.

For instance, I get a daily notice from the Atlanta Business Chronicle.  This is something I’ve requested, so it’s not Spam, but I don’t really want it going to my inbox.  I can set up a rule that moves all of these emails to my “@Read” folder so I can read them at my convenience (for me this is twice a week, early in the morning).  The easiest way to do this is as follows:

The next time the Atlanta Business Chronicle email comes to my inbox, right click on the email then go to “Rules” and click on “Always Move Messages from Atlanta Business Chronicle:


Then I simply click on my “@Read” folder and hit OK:


That’s it.  Have fun applying rules to manage your email!
