Hey guys,

Not sure if this can be done but I was wondering if you could filter emails by certain text at only the start of an email?

For example I want all emails that start with 'Reference Tango' in the start of the body of the email to go to Tango email folder?

Cheers,
J

There are tons of ways to filter emails for filing in your special folders.  If you are wanting to do this with text in the body my suggestion is to select Tools/Rules ...

Then select "New" rule.
Select "Check Message After Sending".  In ths option you can choose to move the email just sent to the folder you prefer.  You will have an opportunity to be specific in the selection with the text in the body of the message, the folder you want to move it to, etc.

If the message has the text in the Subject field then you would choose "Move messages with specific words in subject".

Hope this helps

I mean when the email comes in it checks the first line of the email and nothing else.

Well, it will check the whole email for the text you request.  In the rules you can have it check arriving mail subject or body text for the text you want and then move it to the folder you want.  The Option is:

Tools
Rules
Choose new Rule
Select Mail arriving
Choose the next options as appropriate.  

When you get to the end of the rule you are creating there is an option to check your current inbox for any mail that fits the criteria.  If you want you can check that and it will run the rule at the moment on any existing mail.

Hope this clears the air.
