  1. Speed up Outlook Rules Order

    The order of Rules can be changed ONLY by tapping or clicking an UP or DOWN arrow on a SINGLE rule. This is clunky when managing a large number of rules. Develop a method for selecting multiple rules and re-ordering by dragging the selection.

        • add a rule for where my name is not in the to or cc box

          Please add a rule for "where my name is not in the to or cc box. There is already a rule for "is in the cc box" and one for "is in the to or cc box" and one for "is not in the to box". The new request of a rule for "where my name is not in the to or cc box" will identify the bcc (blind cc) emails, I don't think anybody wants to get an email that is not specifically addressed to them.

          • count the number of items processed by each rule and then auto run a weekly or daily task to list each rule and the count for it

            It would be a great feature to have the ability to know the count of items processed by a rule on a regular basis such as daily or weekly. The list of rules and count of each could be emailed to the account via a system email. This would let you know when you have rules that are working and let you know if a rule set to perm delete emails that the perm delete did indeed occur.

            • Add the possibility to export a single rule

              Currently, you can only export all your rules. I would need the possibility to export a single rule. So that I can send it to collegue who would the import it. right now, if they want a rule similar to mine, they must recreate it. I could then build a Library of usefull rules from which other could pick and choose
