Rules can be created in two ways. Simple rules for a specific e-mail can be created using the Create Rule option; more general or more complex rules are created using the Rules Wizard. You will learn how to create rules using both methods in the following sections.
Create Rule is a command available for e-mail items; you can use it to create a simple rule to display an e-mail in an Alert window, play a sound, or move an e-mail to another folder based on the conditions you select. To use the Create Rule dialog, right-click on an e-mail item and select Create Rule to open the dialog shown in Figure 19.3.
