Hi all,

Has anyone had any success setting up rules within outlook to forward only specific emails that have a subject line tag to their cell phones?   For instance I am on call this week from 8pm EST to 12am EST and if I get an email that contains what we call a Priority 1 (PR1) in the subject line, I would like outlook to forward that email to my cell as an SMS text so I don't miss the alert. Unfortunately no one calls that time of night they just send in emails so if I fall asleep I may not hear the email come in which is why I am thinking this may work if I have my phone on and hear a ding.   We are running O365 so I am guessing I can set rules up from the web interface but not sure fully how to do so.  Again, I do not need it to forward every email that comes in that 4 hour window just emails that have the tag in the subject line of PR1.  Appreciate the help as always.
