Create A Copy Of A Rule In Outlook 2007

Rules in Outlook can be used for a number of different things. Many people use rules to keep their inboxes clutter free and organized. For example, you can have all messages from a specific sender placed in a separate folder.

Once you create a rule, you might want to make a copy of it to use as a template for creating additional rules. For example, if you have a complicated rule with several actions and conditions, you may want to use the same actions and conditions for another situation but choose a different folder to move the message to.

To make a copy of a rule in Outlook 2007:

  1. Open Outlook 2007.
  2. From the Tools menu, click Rules and Alerts.
  3. If you have more than one e-mail account, in the Apply changes to this folder list, select the Inbox that you want.
  4. From the list of rules, select the rule that you want to copy.
  5. Click Copy.
  6. Proceed to make any changes you want to the copied rule.
