Organizing Email In Outlook

By jerry ·
Hi,
I am a subscriber to Techrepublic tech mail. I use Outlook and would like to
be able to organize my different tech helps automatically as they are received, such as Windows NT tips go to a
folder just for Windows NT and Windows 95/98 tips go to a folder just for
Windows 95/98 etc...
I have tried to organize by name - It does not seem to work because each
tech help from the same group such as Windows NT has a different Email
address for each tech help sent. I tried to use specified words in the
address, but the only part of the address that is consistent is
"@newsletters.online.com". However "@newsletters.online.com" is also common to Windows 95/98 and all the other tech help email groups.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Jerry Pahl,

You can send your Outlook emails to any specific folder by either right-clicking on the unopened email icon, and choosing 'Move to Folder...' or 'Copy to Folder...', or by using the File menu inside an opened email, to choose the same options for moving or copying.

There are also options in the Message menu of Outlook. From the Message menu, select 'Create rule from message...' Then 1) Select the condition to create a rule, i.e., 'Where the message body contains specific words.' 2)Select the action, i.e., 'Move to a specified folder', and 3)Click on the highlight to type in the information that should flag the move to your folder.
