So many emails, so little time - How to filter "Needs & Haves" emails
St. Louis Commercial REALTORS® Broadcast Email System and STLCDS (Catylist) Email Broadcast System are valuable tools for your business but the numerous emails in your inbox can be very intrusive. For a better experience, consider categorizing emails by using filters to automatically receive emails to a certain folder. To do this in Outlook, you must create a Rule. To create a Rule:

  • Open a "Needs & Haves" email.
  • Select Rule in the menu bar.
  • Select "Always move messages from..."
  • A Rules and Alerts box will pop-up.
  • Select a folder to automatically receive the "Needs and Haves" email.
  • Moving forward, all emails from the sender will go to this folder, rather than your inbox.
