Outlook Rules "CC"?

I would like to create some outlook rules based on the CC. I am using Office360, but the desktop version, not sure what version number/year it is. In creating rules, I see CC mentioned specifically only in reference to "My Name". I would like to create a rule that says, for example, if the CC address is "abc" and the subject contains "something specific" then move it to folder "xyz".

For rule creation purposes, can I assume that wherever it says something like "To" address, or "recipient" address, that refers to both "To"  AND "CC"?

A secondary question (for bonus points) - can you create rules in Outlook VBA that you cannot create in the rules dialog? I suspect so, but I have never really considered using VBA before.

Thank you.

I don't think there is a way in the rule wizard to check the CC field for any text you want, only your won name.

There isn't a way to configure a built in rule differently than that in VBA.

What you can do though, is create a rule through the rule wizard that runs a VBA procedure on inciming email.  The VBA procedure can then look at any fields or properties of the email and take action, but it all has to be done in the VBA procedure.  For an example of this technique take a look at this procedure:

That looks perfect!  I'm going to try out the VBA approach - looks like there's a lot of flexibility there.

Thanks.
