Message type

The Message type condition is used within a rule to specify the message type that, once met, will trigger the program to process the rule and perform the associated action(s).

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

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

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

    In this particular condition, the operator may be set to trigger the action if the message type:
    • is new email
    • is reply or forward
    • is out of office
    • is meeting request
  • Actual condition value - here you define the expected value of the condition that will trigger the rule to apply the action.
