Quickly creating an Outlook rule


I’ve had a couple of conversations with people recently where they’ve said that they keep meaning to set up an Outlook rule to move specific messages to a separate folder. On each occasion the need to navigate the Tools\Rules And Alerts window seems to have been enough to put the task off. Unfortunately, they weren’t aware that you can right click on a message and choose Create Rule. This brings up a simpler dialog that contains pre-completed options based on the message you had selected (e.g. messages from this sender, with this subject, …) which is my preferred way of creating rules!
