Outlook folders, friend or foe?
Building folders within Outlook and creating rules to automate where your emails land always sparks a love hate conversation. My relationship started cold and warmed up quickly as I had to become best friends with Outlook during my time in a Business Administrator role here at Microsoft and I'm curious to know how you all feel about it! Love? Hate? Or the perfect excuse as to why you didn't catch someone's email :)
Email folder help
When moving an email to a folder on the microsoft mail app, is there a way i can type in the folder name rather than scrolling through a list of my folders? i have hundreds of folders to keep organized & on the outlook app, i can just type in the folder name. on this new mail app, it doesn't seem like that's an option
Outlook rule based on age of email
does anyone know of a way to create a rule in Outlook to move all emails from domain x to folder x and domain y to folder y after they reach a specific age. In other words once an email reaches 17 days old from any sender in x.com, I want to move it from my inbox to folder x. Using data range doesn't work because those are specific dates and I don't want to have to manually update and run everyday. Sweep does not work because it is for 1 sender not a domain. Archive doesn't work because it is for all email and not domain or sender specific, Seems like it should be easy enough. Thanks

The latest Windows Community Newsletter email.
I found your latest Windows Community Newsletter email interesting . However, the features described in ‘‘A world without passwords for Microsoft account users on Windows 10’, and ‘Organize your email with folders and rules in Outlook’ don’t seem to be available on my version of Windows 10 even though I have the latest update (1st July 2020).
in Outlook i have a few folders - CP, CIT, No PO No Pay, etc. Depending on rota depends on what folder i am in mostly that day. today i am in CIT for a few hours doing queries but i also want to be notified of queries in my Inbox BUT Outlook never notifies when you are in a different folder and people are wondering why i'm not responding. Can anyone advise on this? Much much appreciated :) Kim
Improve system efficiency.
One area that needs to be reviewed is the registry. Few if any software uninstallers remove their registry entries. I accept a few have no effect on loading time, but after many trial installs, it all builds up. This also includes empty folders that just add to clutter. Can Microsoft produce software that can get rid of this rubbish?
Trouble blocking email in OUTLOOK
I'm trying to block one word in incoming emails and have run into a wall. I get junk mail from perhaps a hundred places that have the word 'moonfaker' in the sender's address. An example would be: [yqlaniz.ðinfo@moonfaker.com]. All before @ is different with each incoming email, but the moonfaker.com is standard. When I block one the same email comes in with a different lead so the block does not work. I tried 'settings' to put in a permanent block on any incoming email with the word 'moonfaker' in the address, but that did not seem to work. Does anyone here have the same problem? Does anyone here have a solution?

Rules are applied to incoming messages and can be created from any folder. To quickly create a rule that moves all email from a specific sender or a set of senders to a folder, right-click a message in your message list that you want to create a rule for, and select Create rule.
For example, without Stop processing more rules selected, if you have a rule to move all messages sent to a public group to a particular folder and another rule to move anything from your manager to another folder, and your manager then sends a message to that group, you'll find a copy of the message in both folders. If you want only the rule ...
