How to Use Mail Rules to Flag and Highlight Emails



+ Add a Comment


Mail's rules seem to lack the basic ability to nest ANDs & ORs. It seems I've seen those options in some Mac app - iTunes? Am I just missing something?



I couldn't survive without the many rules I have set up in Mail. It is very satisfying when I see in the mail activity box (lower left) 80 emails coming in but only 5 go to my inbox. All the others go to junk, trash, and other folders. One thing I have not set up yet that I would like is a rule that uses the "bounce" feature (in the Message pull down menu). Bouncing an annoying email is very gratifying but it is not an option in the rules. Maybe I can try it with applescript. But Rules do rule -- they are great!
