Rule Object

Outlook Developer Reference

Represents an Outlook rule.

Version Information
 Version Added:  Outlook 2007


Both client and server side rules are represented by the Rule object.

The Rules object model consists primarily of these objects: Rules, Rule, RuleActions, RuleConditions, RuleAction, RuleCondition, and the derived objects for certain rule actions and rule conditions. It provides partial parity with the Rules and Alerts Wizard in the Outlook user interface. Although it does not support creation of every single rule that you can possibly create using the Wizard, it supports the most commonly used rule actions and conditions.

For more information on how to programmatically create, edit, and delete rules, see Manage Rules in the Outlook Object Model and How to: Create a Rule.
