Summary

When you use the Rules Wizard in Microsoft Outlook to set up a rule for processing e-mail messages, you have the option to "Perform a custom action." Custom actions are additional features supplied by third party add- ins. Outlook supplies no custom actions.

More information

There are a number of Rules Wizard custom actions, as Outlook add-ins, available on the Internet from third party sources. To find Outlook add-ins on the Internet, use your Web browser to query on "Outlook" and "add-ins."



Although Microsoft support engineers can help with the installation of add- ins, they will not modify the add-ins to provide new functionality and Microsoft does not guarantee the add-in can be used in all situations.
