How can I create an Outlook 2013 rule which moves any message that doesn't have me listed as a recipient? It's easy to do this for messages which aren't To me, but I only want it to trigger if I'm not on the To or the Cc.

UPDATE: These messages will still arrive, either through BCC, or, more commonly, through certain bulk mailers and mailing lists, which deliver mail without the To: header.

    If your email address is not in the To, CC or BCC fields, how did you receive the messages? – duDE Sep 23 '14 at 14:24

Create a rule for all incoming messages (do not check any conditions) and set "except if my name is in the To or CC box" on the exceptions step.


Easy answer: you aren't receiving those messages anyways... so you can't move them. You have to be in the email recepients to receive the emails
