Hi everyone,

I'm fairly basic when it comes to using Outlook as I normally stuck to web based clients and minimal organization. Then I got my new desk job and well, now it's a matter of learning a ton of new info.

Anyway, I have a lot of sub folders (in an archive) for which to organize my e-mails and at first I created a bunch of rules that would place them in the correct folders for me. What I found though is as new e-mail came in, they would automatically be sorted into those folders making it difficult to keep up with new unread messages, and so I just had to delete all the rules.

Now what I would like is to make rules that follow the same instructions but ONLY when I manually run the rules. That way new e-mails will filter into my inbox and once I'm up to date, I just run the rules and they get sorted. Is this possible?

If you don't add a check in the box next to rule name the Rules Wizard, they will only run manually... or let them run as mail arrives and use the Unread Search folder to read new mail.
