13. Automate Mail with Rules > Use Multiple Conditions and Actions

Use Multiple Conditions and Actions

If a simple rule doesn't meet your needs, you can add multiple conditions to expand (or narrow) the search. To add a new condition, click the button to the right of an existing condition (to delete a condition, click the button next to it).

When your rule has more than one condition, you must choose Any or All from the "If" pop-up menu near the top of the dialog to specify which conditions must match in order for the rule to succeed.

Besides checking for multiple conditions, a rule can perform multiple actions, which you add by clicking the appropriate button. (To delete an action, click its button.) Multiple actions apply in the order shown, so if your first action deletes a message, a subsequent action that replies to it will fail, because the message is already gone. Therefore, if your rule contains a Delete action, put that action last.
