Message direction

The Message direction condition is used to specify the message direction type that once met will trigger an action to be processed by the program.

To define the message direction, expand the Field's context menu within the Conditions tab and choose Message direction (Fig. 1.).

There are two factors (Fig. 2.) that need to be configured within this condition:

  • Operator - enables definition of how the condition will be executed. The execution method may be only set to true.

    In this particular condition, the operator may be set to trigger an action if the message direction:
     
    • is internal
    • is outgoing (note that if a particular external email address is added to Active Directory contact list, it will be treated by the program as an internal email address and this condition will be false)
    • is incoming
  • Actual condition value - here you define the expected value of the condition that will trigger the rule to apply the action.
