Use Outlook Rules to Create a Single, Unified Inbox

Posted: 12/04/2010 in General, Outlook

Windows only: One of the problems with using multiple accounts in Microsoft Outlook is that each account has a separate inbox folder, so the Addictive Tips blog walks you through the process of using rules to create a unified inbox.

The idea is very simple, just create a new folder to store your unified inbox, and then create rules from each account to move the messages into the single inbox when the messages arrive. It’s a simple tip, but could really come in handy, especially if you have a primary email account and a number of secondary accounts that you don’t check as often—you can simply make rules to move the messages into your single inbox. The guide is written for Outlook 2010, but you should be able to use a similar technique in previous versions of Outlook.
