Using E-Mail Filters

5.8.2. Adding a condition

A condition helps to define the E-Mail messages to which the action should be applied. You can set one or multiple conditions.

How to add a condition in the Create new rule window:

  1. Click on Add condition. Make a selection from the drop-down menu. Note the following:

    • In order to use an E-Mail part that is not contained in the list, select Header. Enter a header entry in the Name input field. You can read an E-Mail's header by displaying the source data.

    • In order to consider the BCC part, select Envelope - To. Envelope includes the E-Mail recipients entered in the To, CC or BCC field.

    • In order to use a part of the E-Mail content in the condition, select Content.

    • In order to use the date of receipt in the condition, select Current Date.

  2. Select a criterion from the drop-down next to the E-Mail part. Enter an argument in the input field.

  3. You can add additional conditions. You can then specify whether one or all conditions are to be met in order to process the actions. To do so, click on Apply rule if all conditions are met.

    As soon as there is a condition, you can create nested conditions. To do so, click on Add condition. Select Nested condition.

    To delete a condition, click the Delete icon next to the condition.
