Creating a Rule Based on a Message
In our previous two tips, you've learned how to create new e-mail rules from scratch, and by copying an existing rule. You can also create a rule based on an existing e-mail message. Any of that message's defining characteristics-such as the sender, the list it was sent to, the subject, or the importance--can be used to help define the rule.

Open the message on which you want to base a rule. Click Actions, Create Rule. Then, just follow the instructions in the Rules Wizard to create the new rule.
