Creating Quick Rules

Quick Rules allow you to create simple rules based on incoming mail to eliminate messages with specific subject lines, sender names, or from specified domains.

About this task

Most of the information required to create a Quick Rule is supplied automatically, so you only need to determine the conditions and actions for the Quick Rule. The Quick Rule is generated and stored in the Rules folder. After you create a quick rule, it can be opened, viewed, and edited as a regular mail rule.


  1. To create a Quick Rule, select the message to use as the basis for the Quick Rule.
  2. Click More > Create Quick Rule, and then fill out the form.
