which link should I select?
To avoid going over my limits, I do the following:

File -> Data Account Settings -> Data Files tab -> click your PST and select "Set as Default"

All mail will directly hit your PST instead of filling up your mailbox.

I hope this helps.

Open Outlook and go to Tools -> Rules and Alerts

Select New Rule

Choose Start from a Blank Rule and hit Next

Skip over Step 1 because we want this to apply to all emails

A warning box will come up stating "This rule will be applied to every message you receive. Is this correct?"

Choose YES

On step 2 choose "move to the specified folder"

In the lower box select "specified" and choose your folder

If you want to still see the desktop alert, scroll all the way down and check "display a Desktop Alert"

Click Next

On step 3 choose "except if the message header contains specific words"

In the lower box, select "specified words" and type in your domain name

Click Next

Give your rule a name and save it
