"Run Rule Now..." missing in New Outlook

Jeff Rohlman 10 Reputation points

I have switched over to the New Outlook (Microsoft Outlook Version 1.2024.417.100 (Production)). I've noticed the "Run Rules Now..." feature is no longer available. In the older version, I would review my emails in my inbox first. Then each week I would go to the Run Rules Now... to clean up my inbox and move the emails to the appropriate folder. The feature would allow me to process all my rules without individually running each rule. I have over 60+ rules so running one at time isn't ideal at all. My hope is other users are disappointed this feature is no longer available and it will be added in a newer version. It was a great feature! In the meantime, I will be resorting back to the old Outlook.

    Hi @Jeff Rohlman ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    As i know, only the below option beside the rule is available to run a rule manually in New Outlook for Windows.

    Please kindly understand that many functions are not designed at present. To get this feature more quickly, I have found a post in feedback collection website and you could vote for it. Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. You can also make suggestions on that website and hope Microsoft will notice this in the future.
