A lot of people these days have multiple emails. You have your personal email address, maybe even two or three. And you might also have your work email.
It’s nice to be able to divide up the emails so they go into separate folders. For instance, if you are setting up your Outlook email at work, you may not want your personal emails to mix in with the work because you don’t want to be distracted. But it would be nice if your personal mail went into a different folder and you could check it later.
This is actually pretty easy to do. If you already have multiple email accounts setup in Outlook, just follow these steps to automatically send messages intended for different email accounts to different folders:
- Once you have your email accounts setup, go to Tools > Rules and Alerts
- New Rule
- (Start from a black rule) Check messages when they arrive
- Check the box next to “with specific words in the recipient’s address”
- In the window below, click on the “specific words” link and enter one of the email accounts. Then click Add. Click OK
- Click Next
- Check the “move it to the specified folder” box.
- In the window below, click on the “specified” link and highlight the folder you want that email account’s messages to go into. Click OK.
- Click Next.
- Click Next.
- Check “Run this rule now on messages already in Inbox”
- Click Finish
It’s as simple as that. Let us know if you have questions…
