BULKMAILER User Setup (Outlook)

AppRiver’s Email Security BULKMAILER rule can be used to shift bulk email around your users’ inboxes to a folder of their choosing, which can then be reviewed at a more convenient time.  Once configured, an email rule must then be setup in the user’s Outlook to start automatically shifting the bulk mail to a more suitable folder.

Before starting, please ensure your administrator has configured the BULKMAILER Email Security rule in accordance with the BULKMAILER Admin Setup (Customer Portal) article. (Note that although the screenshots used to create this procedure were developed using Outlook 2013, the procedure for earlier or later version of Outlook is identical.)
