Outlook 2003 Mark as Private from specific user Rule or domain

Description:


When an email message arrives in Outlook 2003, there should be a way for the user to decide if he wants emails from this sender to be marked private. If so, the user clicks a button on the ribbon which marks this message and all future messages from this sender as private. There should also be some way to undo a decision to make emails from someone private.


Reason for request:
I have a "delegate" to my exchange account who is authorized to read all my email messages. When someone chooses to send me a message marked "private" (in Outlook 2003 options) then my delegate cannot see the message. However, I cannot mark a message as private once it comes in.

I would like to create a rule which would automatically mark a message private upon arrival based on the name of the sender or their domain example: mark all emails from *@nasa.com as private (s). However, no such rule appears to be possible. Therefore, I want an add-in which does the same thing.

Sadly not possible. Only way to do this, would be to create a "private" mailbox, and forward all the mail with a rule to that mailbox.

I like that idea, but......the user wants to see the "private" mailbox emails on his blackberry and i can't get the blackberry to accept more than 1 exchange email account.

In that case, forward those "private" mailbox emails to a personal email account that you can set up on the BB.

Well, thought about this.. you could try setting folder permissions on the folder you make "private" and deny access to that folder to the user? Worth a shot I guess.. There is no way in outlook you can do this with a rule the way your customer needs with the "locking" idea

and if that dosnt work, you can try Van's idea, but setup an IMAP or POP3 account on the exchange server that the BB can access

Are you suggesting to forward it to a gmail account that does IMAP or a pop3 so that it can be added to the BB as a secondary email address.  if I do this, the client would be repling with a diffrent email address.

You can set it up on your clients server (IMAP or POP3) so maybe his private mailbox is bob.john@company.com and his private is b.john@company.com this way its fairly transparent to the other companies and you have the separation.

 I would try the Folder security 1st tho, I have looked at it in my outlook, and it seems you can set folder security within mailboxes so set that private folder so the user has none rights too it.. see if that helps.

Create a sub-folder under your INBOX, called "private mail".
Make sure your Delegate is listed on the permissions for this folder as NONE.
Add the folder as one that is synced with Blackberry.

Write a rule to move all messages from special sender(s) to "private mail".

Hi NCHCIT, thats what I said to do 11:56pm :) Maybe I just didnt make as much sence as Postmaster :)

With the Blackberry, you can tell it what folders to sync with the exchange server in the menu system on the phone

From the Messages Folder, look under Options ... Email Settings ... Folder Redirection. From there, expand the trees and select the folders you want sync'd.

Let me know if that isnt correct for your handeset
