Outlook – How To Filter On Bcc Info


I've created a rule that checks for messages sent to a distribution list, but I'm finding that the rules is missing messages in a thread where the sender moves the DL address to BCC. Basically, I want to check if my name is not on the To: or CC: fields. How can I write a rule that takes this into account?

You have to create the following rule:

Apply this rule after the message arrives move it to the BULK folder except if my name is in the To or Cc box

This will move any mail not specifically sent to you to the BULK folder.

Note that if someone sends you a personal email but uses the BCC field, this rule will fire as well. Note also that you may need to check "...and stop processing rules" to all your other rules.
