How it works

Sometimes you would like some messages in your inbox to stand out for some reasons so they are easily distinguished from the other. Typically you will need to do it manually in your email client by using categories or flags etc. (Fig.2.). With CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO you can activate a server-sided rule that will modify subjects of messages that match the defined criteria (Conditions). They will be modified on the fly when they are processed by Exchange so they are easily visible in your inbox (Fig.2.).
