iCloud: Filter email automatically
You can set up rules to automatically filter incoming messages or reorganize messages you’ve already received using Mail on iCloud.com. For example, you can create a rule that sorts messages from a particular sender into a specific folder. You can later edit and delete these rules as desired.
Set up rules to filter email
In iCloud Mail, click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose Rules.
Click Add a Rule.
Specify the filtering conditions.
In the “Name or email address” field, enter a sender’s full or partial name, a complete email address, or an email address domain (the part of the email address after the @ symbol).
Use the “Then” pop-up menus to set up the behavior of the rule.
To add another rule, repeat steps 2 and 3.
If you have multiple rules, they’re applied in the order in which they appear in the Rules list. To change the order, drag a rule up or down in the list. You can have up to 500 rules.
Important: If you apply rules to a folder and then delete the folder or change its name, make sure to update the rules for those folders accordingly. For example, you can’t forward messages to a deleted folder.
Change or remove email filtering rules
Click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose Rules.
Select a rule you want to change, then do any of the following:
Change a rule: Click the Info button , specify new filtering conditions in the menus and text fields, then click Done.
Delete a rule: Select it, then press Delete.
Delete multiple rules: Select them, then press Delete.
Change the order of rules: Select them, then drag them up or down in the list.
When you have multiple rules, they’re applied in the order in which they appear in the list.
Note: It may take up to 15 minutes for new or changed rules to take effect on incoming messages.
