    For Inbox Rules, please allow us to write rules that apply if IMPORTANCE is LOW OR NORMAL.

    We want to write rules that take action when
    (Importance is low OR normal)
    AND sensitivity is normal

    Another way of working that is
    (Importance is NOT high)
    AND sensitivity is normal

    We want to write rules like that, but Outlook Mail doesn't allow us to.

    Please let us vary the SWEEP delay to 7, 10, 31 or 35 days, so that we can SAFELY automatically sweep weekly and monthly notices/sales/discounts, etc.

    7, 10, 31 or 35 days OR simply XX days.

    Please allow us to create rules that run on mail already received.

    This is a really common example of a rule a lot of offices would like to have:
    1. IF mail is UNREAD
    2. AND more than X days old
    3. Forward a copy of the email to ...

    This would help with vacations and staffing issues.

    Change Request for Outlook Mail (outlook.live.com)
    Please let us ADD A 'SORTING PRIORITY' TO OUR RULES, so that priority 1 rules are processed first and priority 9 rules are processed last. The default priority would be 5.

    A lot of people want this rule and having it would make rules so much easier for regular ordinary people to make use of the rule facility, which is growing increasingly necessary as email volumes increase.

    I have an rule that adds a category to my family, urgent, personal, confidential mail. I have another rule that does this for anything with words like receipt, invoice, subscription. I want these rules to stay at the top and be processed first, ahead of my other rules for filtering and sorting email.

    UNFORTUNATELY every time a new rule is added it is added first, ahead of all the previous rules.

    What I am asking for is the ability to add a priority from 1 to 9 to the rules. The DEFAULT PRIORITY would be 5. Rules could be manually assigned a priority to be first or last.

    (Priority 1 to 3 or High, Medium, Low is inadequate because it is not flexible enough. Priority 1 to 5 would be adequate, but why not make it 1 to 9?)

    I'd like this in both web-based Outlook Mail (Outlook.live.com) and in desktop Outlook (Outlook 2016).

    Thanks.
