1. With Outlook 2010 click the home tab, and then the Rules icon.


2. Clicking on Rules will reveal a submenu from that menu click Manage Rules & Alerts.


3. In this example a rule will be applied to messages received, but it is ultimately up to the end user which rule to create and what will best organize the inbox. Clicking on Apply rule on messages I receive, and then clicking Next> will start the rules wizard.
