Outlook 2007 rule to move sent emails to specified folder when a particular person is CC

Is there any way (like a rule) that Outlook 2007 can filter outgoing mail such that any email in which a particular person is copied (CC), the email will automatically move to a specified folder?

Hello drunkennoodle,

If the question is explicitly in regard to the CC field then I don't think a rule will do it.  If it is as a recipient then most certainly so.

A VBA code sequence will be able to check the sent emails for the cc entry of the address so in this way the specific requirement of cc field can be addressed.

If you want to proceed then indicate the required option.

Regards,
Chris

I don't know of any way to filter outbound email but you could always CC yourself on the email and then setup a rule to check the CC line for the email address you are looking for.  You would then get a copy of the email and Outlook could filter it to the folder you specify.  You would end up with two copies of the email one in the sent folder and then the one you sent to your self.  Hope this helps, I don't know of another way to do it.

The user requesting the filter specified to me they were looking for email address in the CC field.  I didn't think it was possible but wanted to see what other Experts had to say.

You didn't say VBA was unacceptable, i.e. can't be done by a rule without use of VBA.

If VBA is acceptable then I believe it can be done ... just wanted to say this for clarity ;o)
