I am trying to create a Search Folder that will exclude specific email addresses.

We have an Alarms folder that we dump all email alarms into once they have been dealt with.

The Alarms come from ~40 different email addresses.

As things do get miss filed occasionally I'm trying to create a Search folder that will display all emails in the "Alarm" folder that don't match any of the ~40 email Addresses.

This would get used periodically to check for misfiled emails and move them out of the "Alarm" folder.

I've tried creating the Search Folder with Criteria -> Advanced:
I selected the FROM field from Field -> Address Field
Condition = doesn't contain
Value = email address

I can't find any other options that would allow me to do what I'm trying to do.

All help is appreciated.
NOTE: Writing VB code is not an option at this time.

Thanks

Hi Diane

Thank you for your reply but I don't see a "General Tab"

I've created my new Search folder then I right click -> Customize This Search Folder -> Click on Criteria in the Pop Up

In the pop up that appears I see 3 tabs: Messages, More Choices and Advanced

Am I in the right location?

Thanks

It would be the Messages tab in that case - the From field on that tab uses the address, the one on the Advanced tab uses the display name.

Hi Diane

When I use that field my search returns all the emails that are from those email accounts.

I'm trying to exclude emails from the know email addresses and want to only find emails that DO NOT match my selection criteria.

Is this possible?

Thanks
Wally

Try installing the extended properties cfg form at How to display the sender's email address in Outlook - then use that field in the Advanced tab.
