Chapter 15. Mail > To create a new Rule

To create a new Rule

1.
Click the “Add Rule” button. You'll get the dialog box shown below (except yours isn't filled in yet).

2.
The Description field contains a default name, such as “Rule #1.” Change this name to something that describes your intended rule. In the example below, I want to keep track of messages about a little book I'm working on, so I want messages relating to that to go into the “Library Angels” folder (mailbox) I created.

3.
In the following conditions section, specify which elements of an email message are to be searched and what the subject of the search will be.

The first pop-up menu contains types of message headers that usually are included with an incoming message, such as To, From, Subject, etc., or you can choose to find text in the body of the message.

Then choose a “modifier” from the second pop-up menu, such as “Contains,” “Does not contain,” or others.

Type an appropriate word or words into the text field. The rule below will search for messages whose “Subject” field “Contains” the word “angels.”

4.
Perform the following actions: Determines what actions will be applied to messages that match the criteria you specified. You can check as many or as few of these actions as you like.

5.
OK: Click OK and the rule is made. All incoming mail will now be searched and sorted using the criteria you just created.
