Default Forwarding email from a public folder to my Inbox

Is there anyway to forward specific email from a public folder to my Inbox? These emails are alerts and need to know in the nick of time of when they come in and I don't want to have to browse the public folder every 5 minutes or so.



Thanks,
Ray500

Default Forwarding email from a public folder to my Inbox

Any answer to this? I am trying to do the same thing by setting rules. Something when wrong because it did not work for me. Here is what I did.

Rules and Alerts, New Rule, Check messages when they arrive; Next
Next (No conditions checked); Yes;
Checked forward it to people or distribution list in the Select action(s);
Select people or distribution list (Fix rule description);
Select contact or list or type email address to forward under To;
OK, Next; Click Next; Uncheck Turn on this rule; Run this rule now; Finish.

Did not apply to new messages coming in. Where did I go wrong?

Thumbs up Forwarding email from a public folder to my Inbox

Missed out a few steps initially but got this working. Here is what I did.

First thing I did was add the external email address to my contact list. Then:
Tools
Rules and Alerts
New Rule
Check messages when they arrive
Next
Check, "from people or distribution list"
In Step 2 click People or distribution list
Add the external address from contact list
OK
Next
I created a folder for these emails so I
Check "move it to the specific folder"
Clicked on specified in step 2
selected the folder
OK
Next (left all exceptions unchecked)
Next
Checked Turn on this rule
Hit Finish.

Works like a charm
