How to setup mailbox rules with an Alias email (not what you think)

Have you tried setting up mailbox rules for an Alias email of yours and it didn’t work?

There’s a very specific way to setup mailbox rules for an Alias email, today I’ll show you how:

Alias Rules won't work in outlook if you're using "the recipient is" or the "Specific words in recipient address" rule.

You need to create a rule to pull the Alias out of the Header FIRST, then you can create your subsequent rules.

You do this by clicking New Rule in Manage Rules and Alerts:

Click Next


Now you're taken to the wizard where you can decide what you want the rule to do, now that it is pulling the alias email out of the email header.

You can now continue with setting up your rules as normal.

Where Did My Contact, Task, or Calendar Entry Go?

HAVE YOU EVER… 

Been working in Outlook and in your busy frenzy accidentally delete a Contact or Task or Calendar entry?  Where does it go? 

FEAR NOT! 

The deleted items go to the…Deleted Items folder!

BUT I LOOKED IN DELETED ITEMS AND IT’S NOT THERE! 

The trick with Calendar entries, contacts and tasks is that they end up in the Deleted Items folder sorted by the date that they were created. So, think way back to when you first created that contact…yeah, I wouldn’t remember either… 

THERE IS AN EASIER WAY… 

Follow these steps to sort your deleted items folder by date deleted and watch those deleted items come bubbling back up to the top: 

 

  1. While in the Deleted items folder click on View –> View Settings

2. Click on the ‘Columns…’ Button

4. Next, select the ‘Modified’ option and click on ‘Add->’ to move it to the ‘Show these columns…’ section

9. Voila!  Your deleted items folder is now sorted by deleted date.  You should be able to find and recover your Contact, Task or Calendar Entry. 

OKAY I FOUND IT.  NOW, HOW DO I GET THESE BACK TO THEIR ORIGINAL LOCATION? 

 

Once you found your deleted item, follow these steps to bring them home. (Example is for a contact, but the principle is the same for all items) 

 

  1. Right Mouse Click on the item and from the menu chose ‘Move’ -> ‘Other Folder…’
