  5. For example, the rule above would apply if it was from a specific person to another specific person and the subject line contained "This is a test email." If these conditions were met the email would be moved to the folder "UNCW."
     
  6. Once you have created your rule click "ok." All emails that fulfill the conditions of the rule will now be filtered appropriately.
