Need a search box for Inbox rules instead of scrolling forever trying to find one.
Re-Enable the option to apply a new rule to all the e-mails currently in the inbox
Hi, I use a service where I get lots of emails. I would like to direct them to folder I've created for those emails.
For move rules add an option to "apply rule to current mails".
Please change it back so you can select more than one email at a time to set a rule for. It is crazy that i have to go thru each one to set a rule to keep only the most recent. AHHHHH

Add a search and filter option for INBOX and SWEEP Rules in order to have easier access, manage and edit rules.
When you have so many rules it is hard to find and edit them.
Inbox rules should be applied to new emails from connected accounts.

When selecting or in a message, and I want it moved to another folder, I can use the move function from the pulldown menu. When I click to do the move, it would be nice to, at the same time, be able to select to create a rule so that also future messages will get that move.
Today, I need to open up a separate interface for creating a rule, and lately, when many of my old rules seem not to work any more, a all-in-one operation would be nice.
Broke my inbox rules - When I was upgraded to the new version (which is slower than the old one in my opinion) my inbox rules were mostly broken. Some appear to have been deleted and others don't work anymore. Previously you used to be able to create a rule on the display name and not just on the exact email address the mail is from. This appears to no longer work and I have no way to get mail from bulk mail services out of my email box. I try to do anything from the bulk mail address; however, that doesn't appear to work. Rules are so important and if these don't start working I'll have to look for another platform.
I LIKE THE 'RULES' I NEVER SAW IT BE CALLED ''RULES'' UNTIL NOW. MY DAD ALWAYS SAW IT CUS HE USES THE PROGRAM, OR WHAT THE KIDS CALL IT 'APP' FOR OUTLOOK.
I CAN'T FIND THE "AND ALL FUTURE EMAIL FROM__________" WHEN I WANT TO MOVE STUFF.
I THOUGHT IT USED TO BE EASYER TO MOVE LOTS OF EMAIL AND NOW IT'S HARDER.
THIS IS GETTING BETTER, BUT NEEDS THE GOOD OL' WAYS
MOVE -> "AND ALL FUTURE EMAIL FROM__________"
JUNK -> "AND ALL FUTURE EMAIL FROM__________"
BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I CAN'T KEEP THESE JUNK SPAMERS OUT.
IT USED TO BE EASYER.

I like the idea of auto responses for particular messages. I would use an auto response to let others know I have received their email and will get back with them asap or I could customize the time frame accordingly.
It would also be nice to have better filters for the incoming mail. I want to create my own folders and filters. For example, If it comes from ebay or any shopping company or app, I'd want all those to go into a shopping folder.
I could come up with tons of ideas if I sat and thought about it but I want keep you:) Thank you and have a great day!
The old system let you create rules one time and all the items listed were then immediately moved to the folder you selected. Now, I have to create a thousand rules 250000 times a day because the rules don't stick. This is utter BS fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All inbox rules to do sweeps of emails currently in the inbox
Raju Sambandam commented
I would like to have the Settings->Options open under a new window. This feature would allow me to check with the emails and at the same time allow me to frame rules and apply simultaneously on the Options Page.
I found that my account lost predefined rules for incoming mail.
Is it only issue for my account?
I am also cannot use my Windows Live Mail application anymore.
What happened to "Manage Rules"?

Syncronize the rules for clean-up. I.e. a rule made on the desktop is valid in the web-version and visa-versa. In fact just run the rules in the cloud so things are sorted before they hit the desktop
Give an option to make inbox rules retroactively apply to all emails already received or only emails in the future. Not sure how much use it would get...
Cap the run time or make it a premium feature if you want idk.
It would be nice to be able to create a rule for emails that marks "unread" messages as "read" when the message is unread for a custom period of time. This way, only recent messages from subscription emails (e.g. Microsoft Rewards, clothing stores sales, etc.) will still be marked as "read", while old messages are automatically marked "unread"

Alocate the old messages in the new folders when a new rule is set
I would like to 'make rules' in folders like I was able to do in the old Outlook. In my opinion, the old Outlook was soooo much better. Please, please, please help with this issue.
