Can I just say that Outlook is a steaming pile of useless shit?
I get a lot of email every day, mostly from various mailing lists, and I have to sort the mail based on who the email was sent to. I.e. if it was sent to linux.kernel, I would have a rule saying that it should be moved into the Linux folder. This does not work every time, and I find myself having to sort mail manually. Thanks, Microsoft.
I’ll show you.
Above: the email in my inbox. Notice the sent-to address.
Above: I select a rule to run now.
Above: I run the rule, and nothing happens.
I have tried changing the rule to use specific words in the recipient address instead, and I’ve also tried making the rule client-only. No cookie.
Oh, and there’s no way to make Outlook show the time that an email was sent when using the vertical preview pane mode. Great.
