F.3 Creating a Custom Message Rule

Message rules work in a similar manner in GroupWise as they do in the Microsoft Outlook email client, by giving you many options for organizing your messages.

  1. Click Tools > Rules, and then click New.

  2. Type a descriptive name in the Rule name field.

  3. Click the When event is pop-up list, and then click an event to trigger the rule.

  4. If you clicked New Item, Startup, Exit, or User Activated, click one or more sources for the item. For example, click Received and Personal.


    If you clicked Filed Item, Open Folder, or Close Folder, click the folder icon, click a folder, and then click OK to display the folder name.

  5. Click one or more types of items you want the rule to act on in the Item Types list.

    If you want to further restrict the items affected by the rule, click Define Conditions, click the appropriate options, and then click OK.

    For more information about the options that you can choose from, see Selecting Fields in Advanced Finds and Rules.

  6. Click Add Action, and then click the action that you want the rule to perform.

    Some actions, such as Move to Folder and Reply, require you to fill in additional information.

  7. Click Save.
