How do I automatically redirect all messages to another account?

After you sign in to Outlook Web App, click Options > Create an Inbox Rule.On the Inbox Rules tab, click New.Under When the message arrives, select Apply to all messages.Under Do the following, select Redirect the message to.Select the address you want your mail sent to by double-clicking on it in the address book view.

What else do I need to know?

Messages that are redirected will appear to come from the original sender. When you reply to a message that has been redirected, the reply will be sent to the original sender.Messages that are forwarded will appear to be forwarded from you. When you reply to a message that has been forwarded, the reply will be sent to the address the message was forwarded from, not to the original sender.A copy of messages that you redirect or forward will remain in your mailbox. If you add an action to delete the message, the message will go to your Deleted Items folder and will still be counted against your mailbox limit. If you exceed your mailbox limit, you may be blocked from sending or receiving new messages and forwarding rules may not work until you delete enough messages to bring the total below your mailbox limit.When you create a forwarding rule, you can add more than one address to forward to. The number of addresses you can forward to may be limited, depending on the settings for your account. If you add more addresses than are allowed, your forwarding rule won't work. If you create a forwarding rule with more than one address, test it to be sure it works.

 

Create a Contact Group

Applies to: Office 365 for professionals and small businesses, Office 365 for enterprises, Microsoft Exchange, Live@edu

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can create a group to store a list of people or groups you want to send e-mail to. You can use a group to send the same message to multiple contacts without having to enter each contact separately in the message.

Note:

This information applies to the standard version of Outlook Web App. The feature that's described isn't available in the Outlook Web App Light.

How do I create a group?

In the Navigation Pane, click Contacts.In Contacts, on the toolbar, click the arrow to the right side of the New button.Click Group.In the new group window, enter the information you want to include for the group.

Group Name is the display name for the group.Members lets you enter the members you want in your group. See below for details about adding members to a group.Notes is where you can add information about the group.

Click Save and Close before you close the group form browser window.

How do I add members to a group?

You can add members to a group by adding them to the Members box and then clicking Add to Group. You can add multiple entries to a group by typing all or part of a name or an e-mail address in the Members box. Separate each entry with a semicolon (;). When you've finished adding names, click Add to Group. If no duplicate names are found, the names will be resolved automatically.

Partial names or e-mail addresses to their corresponding recipients can be automatically resolved only if the partial name or e-mail address is unique. For example, if the address list contains the names John and Johnny, and you type John, the name John isn't unique. This is because John and Johnny can be matched to John. The name John appears in gray text with a dashed red underline to indicate that it isn't unique. If you try to send a message to one or more recipients who can't be resolved to an e-mail address, a menu will be displayed that lists each unresolved name. For each unresolved name, you can delete the name from the list of recipients or select from a list of possible matches that were found in the Address Book.

You can also add members by clicking Members. This opens the Address Book. The Address Book lets you search for entries in your organization's shared address book or in your Contacts folder. After you locate the entry you're looking for in the Address Book, add it to the list of members you want to add by selecting the name and then clicking Members. Click OK to return to your group. Click Add to Group to add the entries to your group. Click Save and Close to save your changes.

What else do I need to know?

Groups that you create in your Contacts folder aren't available to other users in your organization. Public groups in the shared address book are available to all users. Learn About Public Groups.The following options are available on the toolbar when you open or create a group.

Set Up Rules

Learn About Inbox Rules

 

Applies to: Office 365 for professionals and small businesses, Office 365 for enterprises, Microsoft Exchange, Live@edu

Topic Last Modified: 2011-11-23

Rules can be used to automatically sort incoming e-mail into folders based on, for example, who the sender is, who the message was sent to, or the importance of a message. For example, you can create a rule to automatically move all mail sent to a group you're a member of to a specific folder.

Note:

This information applies to the standard version of Outlook Web App. The feature that's described isn't available in the Outlook Web App Light.

How do I manage rules?

To manage rules, click Options> Create an Inbox Rule.

You can use the Inbox Rules tab to create new rules, or to edit or delete existing rules.

What else do I need to know?

To create a new blank rule using the Inbox Rules tab, click New.You don't have to use the InboxRules tab to create a rule. You can also create rules directly from messages. To create a rule directly from a message:

Right-click the message in the message list pane.Click Create Rule, or open the message and then click Create Rule on the toolbar.

Rules are run from top to bottom in the order in which they appear in the Rules window. To change the order of rules, click the rule you want to move, and then click the up or down arrow to move the rule to the position you want in the list.Some types of messages won't trigger Inbox rules, including:

Delivery status notifications, which include non-delivery reports and system messages.Read receipts and delivery receipts that are generated by an e-mail client.Some automatic-reply (Out of Office) messages.

You can create more complex rules by clicking More Options. After you click More Options:You can set more than one condition for your rule.You can set more than one action for your rule.You can add exceptions by clicking Add Exception.You can turn on or turn off Stop processing more rules. By default, the option to stop processing more rules is turned on. With this option on, when a message comes in that meets the criteria for more than one rule, only the first rule will be applied. Without this setting, all rules that the message met the criteria for would be applied.
For example, without Stop processing more rules selected, if you have a rule to move all messages sent to a public group to a particular folder and another rule to move anything from your manager to another folder, and your manager then sends a message to that group, you'll find a copy of the message in both folders. If you want only the rule that moves messages from your manager to be applied, put that rule higher in the list than the rule that moves messages sent to the group, and then edit the first rule to add the option to stop processing more rules.You can edit the name of the rule using the Name box.

Each rule you create will take up space in a hidden section of your mailbox. This section is limited to 64 KB. The actual amount of space a rule uses depends on several factors, such as how long the name is and how many conditions you've applied. When you reach the 64 KB limit, you'll be warned that you can't create any more rules. If that happens, you'll have to delete or simplify some of your existing rules before you can create more. Some ways you can reduce the space used by rules are:Delete rules you no longer need.Shorten the names of your rules.Combine one or more rules that do the same thing.Remove criteria from rules.

When you create a forwarding rule, you can add more than one address to forward to. The number of addresses you can forward to may be limited, depending on the settings for your account. If you add more addresses than are allowed, your forwarding rule won't work. If you create a forwarding rule with more than one address, test it to be sure it works.
