There are things I much prefer in Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail: one of those things is the ability to create a Mail Rule whilst viewing a message. You would simply do so andthe new rule would be created with the dialog box and all of its options/values filled in appropriately. Am I simply missing this or did this ability simply not make the cut?

I found a way!

  1. Right click on the message heading and select Properties, This will give you the incoming address/name.
  2. Copy the name into the clipboard.
  3. Open message rules and paste into the where the subject line contains people box.
  4. Choose the destination folder and press OK.
