Question about creating a rule

Not open for further replies.


Good Day,

Tell me if it is possible to create a rule that will move messages that I had already received to another folder, the minute i flag them?

I am using Office 2007 and the only thing I see are creating rules for messages when they arrive or when i send them, but nothing about existing messages.

Sort of, but not really. What you'd have to do is create the Rule that moves messages flagged accordingly to the folder. Then you'd have to manually "Run Rules Now" occasionally to have it sweep through the Inbox and actually move the flagged items.

Or you could script that action using something like AutoHotKey (free;

OR If you upgrade to Outlook 2010 you can use the Quick Steps to do that.
