I was SO hoping you could help me. You know how it is when you get loads of emails in your inbox, and its full of rubbish.

I didnt know If it would be possible to assign certain email addresses to folders so that when they arrive, they are automatically transfered there?

Say, if i was recieving emails from one person called John, I could assign his email address to a folder called John, and thats where all his mails would go?

If anybody knows how to help, I would be SO grateful.

Hey there james789james, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums.

Are you using Microsoft Outlook Express or Office Outlook.

Here are instructions for Office Outlook:
> Open Office Outlook
> Tools (On the menu bar)
> Rules And Alerts
> Click on "New Rule..." (on the toolbar)
> Select radio option "Start creating rule from a template"
> Select "Move messages from someone to a folder"
> Click "Next"
> Select the check box "from people or distribution list"
> Under the Step 2 section (The list box underneath from where you just selected)
> Click on the underlined "people or distribution list"
> Select the e-mail address from address book provided or add your own
> Then click "Ok"
> Click on the underlined "specified"
> Click on a desired folder or create a new one
> Click "OK"
> Click "Next"
> Make sure the option "move to a specified folder" is selected
> Click "Next"
> Click "Next" again
> Make sure the settings are correct and that the rule is turned on
> Click "finished"

Now you have just set up a rule for Office Outlook, if you are using Outlook Express let me know and I will be glad to write instructions on how to set a rule for Outlook Express.

If you had any problems following these instruction or need anything else let me know. Cool :whistling:
