Re: [Outlook] Outlook 2010 Rules Help

Make two rules. 1) mark it as read, 2) delete it. Both client rules.

Try that.

I think that works.

I created 1 rule that says from my address mark as read. That's a client side rule and is first.

I created a 2nd rule that says from my address move to deleted items (rather than delete it, not sure that makes a difference). That one is a server side rule.

Seems to be working correctly now. If outlook is open, the email gets moved to deleted items and I never see it at all (since it's marked as read) and if outlook is closed, it still gets moved to deleted items and I never see it on my phone.

Thanks!

EDIT: Actually, I had to add a stop processing more rules to the 2nd rule. I guess if you move to deleted, another rule can still move that item to another box.

Great, i have had to play around with rules before to get them to work the way i wanted also.

You could move the two new rules to the bottom of the rules list and might not have to stop processing the other rules if you had any side effects from stopping those other rules.
