Outlook 2007 Message Rule - Display Name vs Email Address?

I'm trying to create a rule to weed out some SPAM. The spam will say it's from me if you look at the actual email address (Me@MyDomain.com) but the display name will be something else like "Pfizer Inc.". I don't want to weed out everything from Me@MyDomain.com since I occasionally forward things back to myself or bcc myself on certain email replies.

Is there any way to build a rule that will filter out everything from Me@MyDomain.com except when the To Address display name says "My Name"?

Hi,

You can use the 'Where my name is not in the To box' condition to filter emails that do not have your name in the display.

I should have said

Is there any way to build a rule that will filter out everything from Me@MyDomain.com except when the From Address display name says "My Name"?

For example, I want to keep the following:
 - Display From Name: Me@MyDomain.com
 - From Email Address: Me@MyDomain.com

But I want to delete the following:
 - Display From Name: Pfizer Inc 1920-2009
 - From Email Address: Me@MyDomain.com

Is this possible?

Yes, you would still use the "Where my name is not in the To box" then select either "move to specified folder" or "delete it"

This rule then checks for your name in the display field, and if your name is NOT found then, based on your action selection, will move the email to another folder or delete the email altogether. You will then be left with messages that only display your name.
