you need to create a rule in outlook to move all the emails to the specified folder.
you can select the rule as anymail where jsmith@gmail is in To,CC or Bcc will be moved to this folder.

Hi Eddie,

What you need to do first open outlook, and create the folder you would like to move all mail into.

Then if you click Tools>Rules and Alerts>Create Rule.

When you are on this screen, you need to select the option that says, ''Apple rule to messages I recieve''. Then click Next.

Then you need to check the option, ''Sent to people or public group''. Then in the box below, add the email in. Be aware that I believe the address needs to be in the address list, but I think it will work because you will have added the email account so it may bypass it. Then click next.

Then select, ''Move Messages to a folder'', select the folder you would like to move them to and click finish. Then you can click ''Run Rules Now'', select the rule and it will move all message into that folder.

Regards

Ben
