In my workplace I get flooded with emails and setting rules helps a lot. I've channeled emails I'm only CC'd on to a separate folder. It's quite a bold move but at least means my main Inbox only shows email someone wants me, specifically, to read. But sometimes people continue conversations on the CC email chains and ask me a question at some point - a question I won't see until maybe the end of the week, if ever. So:
- Can I create a rule that looks for my name (or whatever word/text) in the CURRENT message body - but NOT pick up my name in the To: and CC: lines of previous emails in the chain? The action could then be to flag it or some other suitable action to highlight it as different from others
When I have tried to create a rule searching for my name in the message body it does unfortunately pick up my name in the CC: line from previous emails in the chain, meaning it just flags every email.
