a huge time saver and a problem solved for many of you with the lists that you use.
Tip #5: Outlook Rules.
You know you're getting emails that you don't actually read right away, so you're going to
folder them to read later. Why even let them come to your inbox? You can write a rule that knows
the subject, the sender and even content right in that email. Based on that criteria, Outlook will
automatically folder it for you.
