Set Up Email Rules In Outlook Express For Increased Productivity

by Yvonne Russell on April 26th, 2008


In my ongoing effort to tame my email overload, I’ve had a lot of success with setting up rules for my incoming emails. This tutorial for Outlook Express is a good starting point.

So the Google Alerts for home business automatically go into one folder. They never actually hit my inbox. The PayPal payment notifications when clients pay me go into another folder. Emails from a colleague I work with go to yet another folder and so on.

Emails from clients I am working with stay in the inbox, so I can check on their urgency.

    This sounds like something I need to check into. I’ve set up folders, as you suggested, Yvonne, and that has helped greatly…as long as I remember to sort e-mail as soon as I receive it. Then I don’t have to go scrolling through a mass of e-mail and try to remember which one contained the info I need.

    I get an email from book order co. and they want me to click on their link to order or not but when i click on the link, nothing happens. where do i reset to let me follow through with the link so I can order or not. I can`t figure it out. It used to work great. no problems until a couple days ago. I must have changed something that I`m unaware of. Please help.
