I get emails from one company that is critical to our business and needs to be handled as soon as the email comes in. I need to set up a rule that when I am out of the office or haven't checked my email that day to forward these emails to other co workers. I am not familar with setting up rules.. Can someone tell me if this is possible and if so how to set it up.. Thanks

Hi, a00658.

What you described is partially possible.  You can create an out of office rule that will forward messages to someone else when you are not in the office.  Outlook has no means of creating a rule that can determine if you've checked your mail that day and take action accordingly.

To create an out of office rule

1.  Open the Out of Office Assistant (File tab, click Info)
2.  Click the Add Rule button
3.  Fill in the conditions as needed to work against just those messages you want to forward
4.  Check the Forward box and select the person or mailing list to forward to
