GroupWise Rules

I have several rules setup within my GroupWise client to either place a category on an e-mail ore move e-mail into a Folder for archiving. Since I am highly mobile at this stage and use both a phone and tablet when I am away from my GroupWise client I would prefer to have all my e-mail to go into my inbox first. What I am looking at trying to do is create a rule that if I have read the e-mail then move specific e-mails into those folders.

In playing with the rules I noticed that "When Event is" has several options that might work for me. I am just not sure how to proceed and was hoping for guidance. For instance one of the options is User Activated. If I select this option for Item Types Mail. and define the action of e-mail containing support with an action of Move to Folder does this mean that if I read the e-mail on my phone the mail item is then moved or is this meaning that I have to run the rule manually to process the items.

I guess what I am looking for is a good way to move e-mail I want to keep on record, like anything from my boss. I want it in my inbox so I can read it as it comes in but I also want to organize it once it is read. Should I just start a startup or ext event and manage it at the beginning or end of the day?

Hopefully someone else is doing something similar and can provide some tips.

Thanks

Richard

Well that happens automatically....

Reading the documentation should help... For example User Activated means you have to select items and then run the rules manually. The othe options are described in a straightforward fashion.

Since Data Synchronizer dows not "open" or "close" or ... those events are unlikely to trigger in the absence of a GroupWise client being used.

You can, easily, make an If Read, and Not from my boss, or God Hilself, and regarding some project then file in project folder... sorts of things. You can then run the rules manually selecting an example message and running them manually to see what they do to fine tune them.

What can I say... try stuff.

What would be super helpful is if Novell had an "import" and "export" rule capability from the clients so we can share our favorite rules / rule sets. But alas, after 15 years we are reduced to "describing" these things.
