Create a Filter in Web Mail

Filters are a great organizing tool in e-mail. You can filter incoming e-mail by sender or subject to go directly to a specific folder to be read later. 

From the Settings section of the Web (left side Navigation Pane), choose Preferences.

 

Under Preferences, choose Filters.

 

 

 

 


Select New Filter.


        New/Edit Filter dialog box:


 

Set the parameters of the filter:

1.  Name the filter. Choose a name that will allow you to easily identify the filter later.


Fill in the items that you want your email to be filtered by. These are the “IF” conditions.

èBe sure to place a check mark in the box in front of each item you want to us as a filter.

 

The most common filter is From/Sender.

However, you can add qualifiers. (see example)

 


Now select what you want the filter to do with the messages you have selected. These are             the “THEN” conditions.

àDo you want it to go into trash and be immediately discarded?àDo you want to send all e-mails from your supervisor/Division Chair to a folder with their name?

èDon’t forget to place a check mark in the box in front of each item you want to us as a filter.

 


Click OK        

      (You can set up as many filters as you want or need.)
