Email triaging with rules

Create dynamic rules to triage the inbound emails received by your aliases. Add custom keyword conditions and actions.

By default, aliases have a rule to catch all inbound emails.

Custom rules requires a premium account.

Example uses

  1. Bypass the digest to get important emails straight away
  2. Forward support requests to the relevant team
  3. Ignore certain emails altogether

Rule conditions

Every rule must have a condition. You can add as many rules to an inbox alias as you require to build your workflow.

Choose from the following properties of your inbound email in order to build a rule.

  • Subject line
  • From address

Contains Contain the value

Ends with End with value exactly
Equals Match exactly

Alternatively, match all inbound emails by using the catch all option.

Catch-all setting activated for a custom email triage rule


When your alias receives an inbound email, it is checked against your rules. When the condition is met, one of the following actions are taken.

Action The inbound email
Bypass Skips the alias default digest and is sent to you immediately
Forward to Is immediately forwarded to the provided email address
Ignore Skips the alias default digest completely and is ignored
Use default pace Is stored and sent to you in the next digest

Editing a rule, options include the ability to stop further rules from being evaluated

Stop cascade

Rules are evaluated in order and can be drag and dropped into the workflow required.

When a rule passes (evaluates as true), you have the option to "stop" any subsequent rules.
