4.4.3   Setting Up an Outlook Drone

This section is a continuation of the Setting Up a Spam Filtering Drone instructions for people using Microsoft Outlook 2011. Outlook 365 currently does not work with the drone setup because it does not support schedules.

  1. Make sure that each of your accounts has its own Junk E-mail mailbox. This can be configured by going to the Accounts section of Outlook’s preferences and clicking on Advanced… and then Folders.

  2. If you have a single mail account, follow the normal SpamSieve setup procedure in the Setting Up Outlook 2011 section. When choosing the folder in the SpamSieve - Move Messages rule, be sure to choose the Junk E-mail folder on the server (not On My Computer). You’re now done with this step.

    If you have multiple accounts, create two SpamSieve - Move Messages rules per account. The name of the first rule should be SpamSieve - Move Junk Messages - Account 1 (where Account 1 is the name of your account. It should say:

    If all conditions are met:

    • Folder Is INBOX (Account 1)
    • Category Is Junk

    Do the following:

    Move Message Junk E-mail (Account 1)

    The name of the second rule should be SpamSieve - Move Uncertain Junk Messages - Account 1. It should say:

    If all conditions are met:

    • Folder Is INBOX (Account 1)
    • Category Is Uncertain Junk

    Do the following:

    Move Message Junk E-mail (Account 1)

  3. Download the Outlook - Remote Training script file. Open it in Script Editor and add your account name(s) at the top.

  4. In Outlook, choose Tools ‣ Run Schedule ‣ Edit Schedules…. Click the + button and create a schedule called Remote Training. The When should be Repeating Schedule with a duration of your choice. The Action should be Rule AppleScript. Click the Script… button and choose the Outlook - Remote Training.scpt file from Step 4.
