On the
"Tools" menu, select "Message Rules" --> "Mail".
  2. On the "Message Rules" window, click "New".

  3. The "New Mail Rule" window appears. In this window you can define the "Conditions" for the rule - specific email addresses, subject line, specific words on the message body, etc. - and the Actions - move it to a specified folder, delete it, etc.

  4. Click "OK" to start using the defined filter.
  5. If you want to stop receiving email from a specific sender, choose "Blocked Senders List..." from the "Message Rules" menu. Click "Add" to input the email address you want to block.

  6. Click "OK".
  Using the Message Menu:

  2. Go to the Message Menu and select "Create Rule From Message...' or "Block Sender...".
