2. Every rule needs at least three things: a name, a condition, and an action.
Rules can also contain exceptions to conditions. You can add multiple conditions, actions, and exceptions at each step by choosing Add a condition, Add an action, and Add an exception.
For example, to create a rule that deletes all email with the word "weather" in the subject:
Name = "Weather"; Condition = Subject includes "Weather"; Action = Delete
- Rules only work on email in your Inbox.
- If you don't want any more rules to run after this one does, select the Stop processing more rules check box.
- Click Save to create your rule.
