Use inbox rules to automatically perform specific actions on email that arrives in your inbox. This is a great way to filter emails to automatically sort them into folders.
Rules are applied to incoming messages and can be created from any folder.
To quickly create a rule that moves all email from a specific sender or a set of senders to a folder, right-click a message in your message list that you want to create a rule for, and select Create rule.
Choose the folder where you want all messages from that sender or set of senders to be moved, and then select OK.
If you'd like to do more than just move the message from a specific sender or set of senders to a folder, select More options.
To create a completely new rule, at the top of the page, select Settings > View all Outlook settings > Mail > Rules.
Click Add new rule.
Every rule needs at least three things: A name, a condition, and an action. Rules can also contain exceptions to conditions. You can add multiple conditions, actions, and exceptions at each step by choosing Add a condition, Add an action, and Add an exception.
If you don't want any more rules to run after this one does, select the Stop processing more rules check box. For more information, see Stop processing more rules in Outlook.com.
Press Save to create your rule or Discard to cancel rule creation.
