Always move messages from a specific sender

In four clicks you can create a rule that moves email messages based on the sender or recipients of an email message. For example, if you are reading a message from Anne Weiler, you can create a rule that moves all messages from Anne Weiler to a folder that you specify.

  1. With a message selected and previewed in the Reading Pane or open in its own window, in the Move group, click Rules, and then click Always Move Messages From.

  2. Select a folder, and then click OK.

Note: You can also create this type of rule by right-clicking a message in the inbox, selecting Rules, and then choosing Always Move Messages From

The new rule moves all future messages that match the selected sender. The rule also immediately moves any matching messages in the folder that you are reading.

To create advanced rules with more options or to delete a rule, see Manage email messages by using rules.
