If you missed our newsletter on creating new or custom Outlook rules, you can read it here.

  2. Select the Home tab from the navigation ribbon.

  5. Click on presented check boxes under the section When I get e-mail with all of the selected conditions.
  6. Choose an action to apply when the conditions are met under Do the following.
  7. Choose OK to create the rule or Advanced options, which takes you through the same Rules Wizard used to create rules.
