About Filter Rules

Filter rules can be easy or complex. Decide, if you want your filter rules to be activated only in special cases and let them sort your email.

You can organize and clean up your mailbox automatically using filter rules. They move email to specific folders or delete them based on their senders and subjects.

Every filter rule has two components:

  • A condition. The filter rule is only triggered if the condition is fulfilled. Example: The email was sent by "john.doe@mail.com".
  • A task that is performed when the condition occurs. Example: The email is moved to the "John" folder.

Filter rules can also consist of multiple conditions and tasks. You can define whether one or all conditions must be fulfilled for the filter rule to be applied.
