Part 8. Getting Online > Filtering Email in Mail

Filtering Email in Mail

In Mail, choose Mail, Preferences.

Click the Rules button to see the filtering options.

Click Add Rule.

Give the rule a name in the Description field.

INTRODUCTION

The more email you get, the more you'll appreciate having Mail help you with the filing. Mail can analyze each message you receive based on who sent it, where it was addressed, what it says, or several other criteria, and it can file that message in the appropriate mailbox. Mailboxes with unread messages are shown in bold type.


TIP

Excluding Messages from Rules

You can make a set of rules that acts on all email messages but a particular group. First, create a rule that filters the group you don't want to act on into the Trash or a mailbox. Then create another rule to apply your action to Every Message; this rule acts on all the messages remaining after the first rule is executed.


Choose any or all from the pop-up menu; with any, the rule is activated if one or more condition is met, and with all it's activated only if they're all met.

Set up the condition you want to filter on; click the + button to add more conditions.

Set up the action to be invoked if the conditions are met; click the + button to add more actions.

Click OK.
