How do I make Outlook run rules automatically? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a rule that moves messages sent from a specific email address to a specific folder but it only works when I open up Rules and select "Run Rules Now".  How can I make it run automatically so I don't have to do this step?  Thank you in advance!

  • Hi The Victim,

    Please make sure the rule has been turned on by checking if the checkbox is selected:

    Besides, in case the issue is related to the order of the rule, you may try moving the rule up to top to check the result.

    By the way, is this a rule intended for a Shared Mailbox? If this is the case, based on my research, it is not supported to create a rule for shared mailbox, please create a server side rule for the shared mailbox in OWA as a workaround.

    Hope the above can be helpful.

    Regards,

    Yuki Sun
