Here we provide the instructions for Outlook setup rules.

Outlook setup rules:

  • Prepare a backup mail directory as a reserve mailbox(ex. Hotmail, Gmail)
  • Create new rules in [Email rules] and assign the backup destination mail directory.


  • Check [perform the rule to the mails in Inbox], will backup all the mails you ever received. And the mails are backuped to the assigned directory.
