Groupwise: Create an Email Rule

How can I do this in...Google, Outlook

Email rules can be used to apply special handling to the email you receive in your GroupWise mailbox. You can create rules to move email to a specific folder (including your Junk Mail folder or Trash).

Create a Rule

  1. Go to "Tools" > "Rules" > Click [New...]
  2. Type the name of your rule in the "Rule Name" box.
  3. Under "When event is," make sure [New Item] is selected in the pop-up list and the "Received" check box is selected.
  4. Under "Item Types," select the appropriate message types. (i.e., Clicking on "Mail" means that the rule will only affect regular incoming mail messages.)
  5. Click [Define Conditions].
  6. The conditions that you choose next depend on what emails you want to filter from your inbox.  For example, if you want to filter e-mails from a specific person or organization, click "From" in the first pop-up list.
  7. Make sure [= Matches] is selected in the second pop-up list, then type that person or organization's name in the next box.
  8. Select [OK].
  9. Click [Add Action]. Choose the action you want performed on these items.
    • "Move to Folder..." will move the specified items to a folder of your choice.
    • "Delete/Decline..." will send items to your trash can.
    • "Empty Item" will delete the item from GroupWise completely (it will not display in your trash can).
  10. Click [Save] > Click [Close].

You can modify this rule at any time.

Disable a Rule

  1. Click "Tools" > Choose "Rules."
  2. All of your rules will display in the "Rules" dialog box.
  3. Uncheck the box next to the rule you wish to disable.
  4. When you are ready to use the rule again, just re-check the box.
